Abstract

A GaInNAs/GaAs vertical cavity semiconductor optical amplifier (VCSOA) is reported. This is believed to be the first monolithic VCSOA operating at 1.3 µm. Under continuous-wave optical pumping in a singlemode fibre coupled format, gain figures of up to 17.7 dB were achieved. Amplification with 12 GHz bandwidth was obtained at 12.8 dB peak gain.
