Abstract: Strong frequency conversion among light waves propagating in a low-birefringence optical fiber in the normal-dispersion regime is experimentally investigated. Modulational gain spectra are obtained by injection of a signal orthogonally polarized with respect to a pump beam aligned with the slow fiber axis. Measurements reveal that, for signal power levels above a certain threshold value, peak conversion is obtained at pump signal frequency detunings far from the phase-matching condition. The large-signal three-wave mixing regime is well described by integrable nonlinear coupled-wave equations.
