Abstract

This paper reports on the experimental observation of power and wavelength optical bistability (OB) and nonlinear gain in a 1550 nm- vertical cavity semiconductor optical amplifier (VCSOA) biased just below threshold and operated in reflection. Two different shapes of power and wavelength OB and nonlinear gain, anticlockwise and clockwise, have been experimentally observed, both with high on-off contrast ratio.
