We review recent methods to increase the speed of the nonlinear optical response of semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs), including the use of filters and of an additional SOA in the 'turbo-switch' configuration. We also consider the effects of optimising parameters, such as the confinement factor and optical area, on the recovery rate.
