The impact of pump parameters on dual-pump (2-P) fiber optical parametric amplifier (FOPA) is investigated. The four-wave model of coupled amplitude equations with fiber losses and pump depletion are solved numerically for the calculation of the parametric gain. Simulation results indicate that an increase in pump powers does not only enhances the parametric gain but also flattening the amplification bandwidth. Moreover, separating the pumps wavelengths further from each other can also improve the flatness of the bandwidth. Besides that, the parametric gain flatness can be improved when the separation between the pump central wavelength and zero-dispersion wavelength is small. In essence, the optimal performance of 2-P FOPA can be achieved when the pump parameters are carefully tailored.
