I need to make an amplifier which could amplify very small signals (uV) embedded in noise. The frequency of the signal to be amplified is known. The problem is that the signal has too much noise around it. I was told that a lock-in amplifier or phase sensitive detection (demodulation) can solve the problem but i don't know how to make it.

I think that is a stability problem because there is feedback circuit from output to OPAMP and phase shift is not clear.
As KlausST said, a AF Power amplifier can be used, they are stable.

The amplifier's phase and gain plot:
When gain=0dB, the phase marge=72, which is stable for the unit gain bandwidth 22.7MHz.
However, the phase changes a lot within the unit gain bandwidth, like a sine waveform. In this case, is it acceptable for the phase not monotonically decreasing? Thanks.

Hi, This is the picture of a mini magnetic amplifier (called ferristor).
If one would want to build the ferristor, how he should wind the left hand side windings?
My guess is that the left winding, must be two with different phase (wind opposite) so that they can cancel the transformer action from the output winding.
So how to wind them?

The PMOSFET is wrongly connected in your schematic. You should also consider that the MOSFET booster circuit is adding gain and reducing phase margin so that the amplifier needs additional frequency compensation to achieve stability.

A PI error amplifier would be my first guess.
You didn't tell about the phase shifter range. Generally, an additional comparator for positive or negative phase difference and phase reversal switch are required to push the phase difference to the right part of the detector curve.

High frequency phase shifts in an amplifier or opamp cause it to oscillate at a high frequency when negative feedback is added because then the high frequencies produce positive feedback. So the compensation capacitor is added at the VAS stage to cut gain at high frequencies so that the gain is less than one at frequencies where it would oscillate.

Problem you have is when resistors are changed Ic current must not be changed. Resistor 1k can have so high resistance that 270ohm resistor is not needed. In this case temperature stability is lowest possible. Changing resistors you also change the gain and phase of amplifier which may stop oscillating.

At a frequency < GBW, my phase response dips to 40deg (LHP zero present).
... i.e. why would the 40deg frequency not cause more ringing?
Right: If you set the amplifier's closed loop gain to that gain < GBW where you find this 40° PM dip, the amplifier will show more ringing around that frequency.

An oscillator needs positive feedback. If it has only negative feedback then it is an amplifier, not an oscillator.
The phase shift circuit in an oscillator has a certain amount of signal loss which must be made up by the gain of the circuit.
A simulator does not know that noise is amplified and gets an oscillator to start oscillating. Then you mu

The term "lock-in amplifier" doesn't exactly match the application, but a complex impedance measurement with phase sensistive rectifier is perfectly suited. In addition a measurement circuit that is insensitive to cable capacitances, e.g. voltage source/current sense. That's how all AC impedance (LCR) meters work.

I am not sure if this answers your question:
Sinusoidal signals can be expressed by exponenetial functions like Vin=Vo*exp.
If such a signal is applied to a frequency-dependent network (filter, amplifier) the output will change in magnitude and phase like Vout=A*Vo*exp.
Thus, the gain is Vout/Vin=A*exp.
