Paper Abstract

The dominant limiting factors affecting the performance of an amplified 10-Gbps CWDM data transmission system with an inline semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) are investigated. More than 3 dB of system penalty at a BER of 1x10-9 can be attributed to ASE and cross-gain-modulation (XGM) effects.
