This paper presents and demonstrates a simple pattern effect suppression technique for the downstream repeater and the upstream booster semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs) of an SOA-based, optically amplified passive optical network (PON) system. The synchronized gain-clamping light injection technique is applied to an SOA mainly consisting of an… CONTINUE READING
