Paper Abstract

This paper aims at numerically simulating gain recovery enhancement effect in SOAs when a CW pump light is applied. An effective carrier lifetime model was given and used to investigate the pump power and wavelength dependence of SOA effective carrier lifetime. Effective carrier lifetime reduction behaviors and gain saturation curves at the signal wavelength were simulated. Gain dynamics introduced by short pulse amplification in a CW pumped SOA were also simulated to visualize the recovery enhancement effect.
