Abstract

An approach of utilizing long Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers (SOAs) in Nonlinear Optical Loop Mirrors based on Transparent Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers (TSOA-NOLMS) is presented. This approach can reduce the pump power dependence of the transparency carrier density of the SOA and simultaneously enhance the probe pulse transmission of the device.
