Paper Abstract

A new scheme is proposed to control the gain spectrum of semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOA). Carrier distribution along cavity is changed by non-uniform current injection in a multi-electrode SOA. Based on the multi-section model, the gain bandwidth characteristics of a two-electrode SOA are analyzed. The possibility of controlling the gain spectrum of SOA by multi-electrode pumping is shown.
