Abstract
In this paper, we analyze the polarization variation of semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) induced by temperature variation. This work is motivated by the requirement of high-speed optical signal transmission in fiber communication networks with using SQAs. Experimental polarization Stokes parameters are measured. The degree of polarization shows monotonically decreasing with temperature increasing. The temperature variation of SOA is monitored between 14 degree(s)C to 33 degree(s)C. Our work is helpful for measuring the temperature effect on polarization of SOAs for application in optical communication systems.
