Paper Abstract

An 1550 nm semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) with a very thin tensile-strained bulk active layer and active width-tapered spot-size converters was developed. The SOA module exhibited a record high saturation output power of +17 dBm together with a low noise figure of 7 dB, large gain of 19 dB and small polarization sensitivity of 0.2 dB. A good eye pattern without waveform distortion due to the pattern effect was obtained for amplified 10 Gb/s NRZ signals up to an average output power of +12 dBm.
