Noise Spectrum of a Semiconductor Optical Amplifier Excited by a Modulated Signal

Abstract

A detailed analysis of the noise spectrum of a semiconductor optical amplifier excited by an amplitude-modulated input signal is presented. This extends the well-established theory for the case of continuous-wave input signals and is relevant for various applications within optical signal processing. One important example is the analysis of noise in… (More)
