Paper Abstract

Mode-locked lasers (MLLs) and semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs) based on quantum dot (QD) gain material will impact the development of next generation networks like the 100Gb/s Ethernet. Hybrid mode-locked lasers consisting of a monolithic two section device presently already generate picosecond pulse trains at 40 GHz with an extremely low jitter in the range of 200 fs under optimum operating conditions. A detailed chirp analysis which is prerequisite for optical time division multiplexing applications is presented. QD SOAs are showing superior performance for linear amplification as well as nonlinear signal processing. Wavelength conversion via cross-gain modulation is shown to have a small signal bandwidth beyond 40 GHz under high bias current injection. This makes QD SOAs much superior to conventional SOAs.
