Paper Abstract

In this communication we focus on the potential use of travelling wave semiconductor laser amplifiers as high-speed all-optical inverters. Although semiconductor amplifiers suffer from saturation and crosstalk effects which can degrade the device performances required in some applications, we show here that both phenomena can be induced in order to produce optical transference and inversion of the information between two channels in a direct-detection system.
