Abstract
Semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs) are key components in the short and medium range 1310 nm wavelength domain optical transmission systems utilized in e.g. high speed Ethernet. In this paper, by means of simulation we investigate the influence of an SOA on the transmission quality in the 1310 nm wavelength domain high capacity 10×40 Gbit/s wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) system. It occurs, that the maximal channel spacing for such system is 400 GHz for which the differences in gain of the channels do not exceed 1.5 dB, and the sensitivity differences resulting from the SOA bandwidth are below 1 dB.
