We report the direct proof of parametric amplification in a semiconductor waveguide. Thanks to low propagation losses and high nonlinear efficiency, we amplified an input signal at 2 μm in a selectively oxidized GaAs/AlAs multilayer waveguide through the down conversion of a pump at 1 μm. The 4.5% single-pass gain measured for a 30 mW cw pump is compatible with parametric oscillation, provided that distributed and concentrated waveguide losses are further reduced.
