A dynamic model of a bulk reflective SOA is described. The model includes spontaneous emission and uses full bandstructure based calculations of the active material gain coefficients. The model is used to simulate the use of an RSOA to modulate an input CW lightwave at multi Gb/s data rates using bias current modulation. Simulated eye diagrams show good… CONTINUE READING
