Abstract: Nonlinear effects in fibers with partially coherent pumps have attracted a great interest in view of their potential for polarization insensitive wavelength conversion and the increased resilience to Stimulated Brillouin Scattering [1]. In this work we experimentally study the problem of non-degenerate four-wave-mixing (FWM) by using a pair of partially coherent pumps, and focus our attention on a specific type of FWM, which is generally called \”Bragg-Scattering\” (BS-FWM). This kind of FWM has attracted a renewed interest because of its intrinsically low-noise nature which makes it potentially applicable for light-by-light manipulation even for very faint signals such as quantum keys [2].
