Paper Abstract

We investigate the nonlinear response of an InP-based optoelectronic wavelength converter by three-dimensional device simulation including an advanced many-body model for gain and absorption in the InGaAsP quantum wells. The wavelength converter combines a pre-amplified receiver with a post-amplified sampled-grating distributed Bragg reflector tunable laser diode. Good agreement between simulation and measurements is obtained. The nonlinear signal transmission is mainly attributed to quantum well saturation effects in amplifier and photo-detector. Saturation related microscopic physical processes are analyzed in detail.
