Abstract
A simple model of semiconductor diode optical amplifiers is developed and applied to broad-area structures. Small signal gains as high as 20dB are shown to be feasible. Effects of physically tapering the amplifier to saturate the gain more efficiently are examined. A potential 10% increase in extraction efficiency is shown. Practical limits on the amplifier gain are discussed.
