Abstract

It is shown that measurements of the effect of optical injection with an external laser on the spectral response of a semiconductor optical amplifier can probe intrinsic properties of a working device. The data demonstrate that under saturated gain conditions the carrier energy distribution within the active layer of a AlGaAs/GaAs amplifier neither shows spectral hole burning nor carrier heating, but only a decreased density.
