Paper Abstract

In recent years, the all-optical signal processing system has become a hot research field of optical communication. This paper focused on the basic research of quantum-dot (QD) semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) and studied its practical application to all-optical sampling. A multi-level dynamic physical model of QD-SOA is established, and its ultrafast dynamic characteristics are studied through theoretical and simulation research. For further study, an all-optical sampling scheme based on the nonlinear polarization rotation (NPR) effect of QD-SOA is also proposed. This paper analyzed the characteristics of optical switch window and investigated the influence of different control light pulses on switch performance. The presented optical sampling method has an important role in promoting the improvement of all-optical signal processing technology.
