Paper Abstract

Two-segment semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) is proposed and studied to manipulate the gain and saturation characteristics of SOA; this kind of SOA is separated into two segments that are electrically insulated from each other by two split electrodes; the two segments share the same active region and other internal structure. By changing the injection current density of the front segment or back segment, the saturation output power, bandwidth and gain compression can be easily controlled. Therefore it is convenient for SOA to meet various application requirements in optics communication.
