Paper Abstract

The gain dynamics of a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) are studied for the amplification of long, short and multiwavelength pulses from an external cavity semiconductor mode-locked laser. Nonlinear effects such as carrier heating and cooling, four wave mixing, and self phase modulation are observed, and it is shown how the inherent chirp of semiconductor mode-locked laser pulses helps to avoid these nonlinear effects.
