Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


We demonstrate a new technique of measuring differential carrier lifetimes and linewidth enhancement factors in semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs) using the modulation responses of a self-gain modulated SOA with and without fiber transmission for various SOA input optical powers.
