This paper reviews some of the most recent methods for increasing the speed of operation of all-optical switches based on semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs). We concentrate on two approaches; namely, methods to utilise the high-frequency tail of the nonlinear optical response of SOAs, and ways to reduce their gain recovery time.
