Samenvatting

A bulk semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) utilizing a multi-contact biasing method is characterized as a function of the bias current supplied to each section Firstly, amplified spontaneous emission spectra and characteristic light-current profiles are analyzed. Single-pass gain and noise figure of the SOA are then assessed by injecting a continuous wave input beam. Finally, the amplification of a 10 Gb/s (215-1) long pseudo random bit sequence signal is analysed. The obtained results, particularly at a bias condition of 90mA-50mA-10mA, reveal the potential of this device as a low noise figure in-line amplifier.
