In this paper, the gain spectrum and the saturation behavior of one-pump fiber optical parametric amplifiers (1-P FOPAs) are investigated by taking into account the fourth-order dispersion coefficient b4 in the analysis. The results show that it is necessary to consider b4 in the analysis when the wavelength difference between the signal and pump waves is large enough and/or whenever the pump wavelength approaches to the zero-dispersion wavelength (ZDW) of the fiber. Also, it is shown that by increasing the value of b4, the gain value is increased and the saturation power is decreased. Finally, the simulation results are compared with the available experimental data and a very good agreement is obtained.
