Abstract

In this paper a new method is demonstrated for the suppression of polarization dependent operation of a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA). This scheme averages out the polarization dependency by integrating a polarization converter in between two half SOAs. The concept is investigated with simulations and the operation is experimentally demonstrated. demonstrated.
