With recent developments and optimizations for quasi-phase-matched adhered ridge waveguide (QPM-ARW), outstanding performances containing efficient amplification were demonstrated by difference frequency generation (DFG) and optical parametric amplification (OPA). A maximum channel conversion efficiency of +7.6 dB (570%) was achieved in a telecommunication band using a 50 mm-long device, when coupling with 160 mW pump. Simultaneously, the input signal was amplified up to +9.5 dB (890%).
