The concept of amplimorphism is a way to present bimodules in terms of linear maps.
For $A$ an associative algebra (not necessarily unital) over some ring $R$ (possibly with extra structure, in applications often a C*-algebra) then an amplimorphism from $A$ to $A$ is an algebra homomorphism of the form
for $n \in \mathbb{N}$ and $Mat_n(R)$ the ring of matrices with coefficients in $R$ under matrix multiplication.
This map induces the $R$-bimodules $N_\alpha \subset A \otimes R^n$ on elements $N_\alpha = \{\psi \;|\; \alpha(1)\psi = \psi\}$ with left $A$-action given by $\alpha$ and right $A$ action given by componentwise multiplication with $A$ from the right.
(If $R = \mathbb{C}$ and $A$ is a C*-algebra then this is canonically equipped with the structure of a Hilbert bimodule).
At least in the context of AQFT amplimorphisms were introduced
The concept is recalled for instance in
