Abstract

An investigation of gain, optical power, and amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) noise characteristics of different types of semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) operating in the conventional (C-) band is carried out. The types of SOAs include linear, nonlinear and in-line SOA that are customized in a wideband travelling wave (TW) SOA configuration through OptiSystem software. These SOAs are further simulated in MATLAB using a numerical steady-state model to determine and evaluate their performance. The results showed that the linear SOA has the most ideal and distinct characteristics, as compared to the nonlinear and in-line SOAs rendering it more suitable as gain medium in the multiwavelength fiber laser (MWFL) application.
