Semiconductor optical amplifiers based on quantum dots show small-signal cross-gain modulation bandwidths exceeding 40 GHz. In large signal operation wavelength conversion at 80 Gb/s over 10 nm is presented. Two section mode-locked lasers at 40 GHz yield ultra-low jitter of 200 fs in hybrid operation. Optical feedback presents an alternative way to effectively reduce the jitter and opens up the possibility to extract a microwave signal, having the same properties as the optical pulse comb, from the absorber section.
