Genetic algorithm is adopted to give an automatic design scheme for fiber-based optical parametric amplifiers (FOPAs). Main steps of the optimization process and discussion about this algorithm are presented. The results show that present FOPA has more than 300-nm flat bandwidth with a central wavelength of 1500 nm and a gain ripple of less than 0.3 dB. Meanwhile, fluctuation in zero-dispersion wavelength of fibers is taken into consideration and its influence is briefly analyzed.
