This precious publication offers a entire remedy of the layout and purposes of the semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA). SOAs are vital elements for optical verbal exchange platforms with purposes as in-line amplifiers and as useful units in evolving optical networks. The sensible functions of SOAs have been first studied within the early Nineties; considering that then, the range and scope of such purposes were progressively transforming into. "Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers" is self-contained and unified in presentation. The remedies within the e-book are certain sufficient to trap the curiosity of the curious reader and sufficiently whole to supply the required historical past to discover the topic additional. it really is meant for use as a complicated textual content via graduate scholars and via practising engineers yet can be compatible for non-experts who desire to have an summary of optical amplifiers.

2. 1 Gain as a function of output power for multiquantum well amplifiers. 2 fier [28]. ch02 31 Operating principle of polarization insensitive multiquantum well ampli- strained quantum wells contribute mainly to TM gain and to TE gain to some extent. The ratio of TE to TM gain (given by ratio of the matrix elements) for electron-light hole recombination (in tensile strained material) is about 1 to 4. The ratio of the number of both types (compressive and tensile) strained layers and their widths are optimized in the structure so as to yield polarization insensitive gain.

3 Spontaneous emission rate At unity quantum efficiency, the total spontaneous radiative recombination rate R equals the excitation rate. 12) with R = rspon (E)dE where e is the electron charge and the thickness of the active region is assumed to be 1 µm. rspon (E) is the spontaneous emission rate at a photon energy E. It is given by [3, 4]. rspon (E) = 4πne2 E m2o ε0 h2 c3 +∞ −∞ ρc (E )ρv (E )|M (E , E )|2 f (E )[1−f (E )]dE . 3 µm). The calculation is for an undoped lightly compensated material with 1017 cm−3 of acceptors and donors, respectively.

The quantity Mb arises from the band-edge Bloch functions and Menv arises from the envelope wave functions. 10) where mc is the conduction-band effective mass, Eg is the energy gap, and ∆ is the spin-orbit coupling.
