We demonstrate phase-sensitive amplification of multiple wavelength-division-multiplexed continuous-wave (CW) signals by frequency nondegenerate four-wave-mixing process in optical fiber. By fine-tuning the optical wavelengths of the CW signals, simultaneous phase-sensitive in-line amplification of three signal channels is realized. This indicates the possibility of amplifying multiple data channels by an in-line phase-sensitive fiber parametric amplifier. We also discuss a potential system architecture employing such amplifiers.
