Paper Abstract

Traveling-wave semiconductor optical amplifier with self- phase modulation can be used to compensate for the laser chirp and optical fiber dispersion. Steep pulse edges of the initial laser output pulses lead to incomplete phase compensation and the compensated pulse distortion after a fiber transmission because the nonlinear chirp is added to the compensated pulses. Satisfactory operation of phase compensation, with small transmitted pulse distortion, is possible if the SOA is operated under optimum saturation level.
