We study the wave propagation through a semiconductor optical amplifier. It is investigated how the anisotropy caused by the quantum wells and the waveguiding together determine the polarization sensitivity of the amplification. We also analyze how the tensile strain in the quantum well can be optimized such that the resulting amplifier operates independent of the state of polarization of the incident field. The promising properties of non-(001) grown quantum wells are discussed.
