Abstract
The interest in linear amplifiers for metro DWDM networks has resulted in a number of products, including erbium-doped fiber amplifiers, erbium-doped waveguide amplifiers, and gain-clamped semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs). An alternative approach is to use a conventional SOA in the unsaturated regime. This paper describes some of the design tradeoffs inherent in such an approach; crosstalk and chirp measurements for two different quantum-well designs are also presented.
