The fabrication and performance of a InGaAsP-InP semiconductor optical amplifier for wavelength conversion in subcarrier multiplexed system is described. The amplifier is of the buried facet design and has polarization and reflectivity gain ripple of less than 1 dB. Using subcarrier multiplexing, multiple 50-Mb/s data streams at a wavelength of 1.553 /spl mu/m are infected into the amplifier. The gain nonlinearity of the amplifier transfers the data to a different wavelength of light… CONTINUE READING
