Introduction

Semiconductor Optical Amplifier (SOA) are offered as stock items or associated with a choice of low-noise CW or high-speed pulsed drivers. An SOA optical amplifier driven in CW or pulse mode operates as a full-range amplifier, full-range variable optical attenuator, a lossless high dynamic range amplitude modulator or an isolation switch.

All these Semiconductor Optical Amplifier (SOA optical amplifier) show high gain and high output power performances over a wide range of wavelengths. CW or pulsed SOA+driver solutions in either open-frame or turn-key versions are described below. An SOA amplifier driven in CW mode is a smart alternative to classical EDFAs (Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifiers). When driven in pulsed mode with our high end electronics, it can be compared with AOMs, EOMs or direct laser diode fiber modulators. It is the only solution meeting all the constraints for a reliable, stable and efficient fiber-coupled intensity amplification and modulation.

Semiconductor optical amplifier (SOAs) have proven to be versatile and multifunctional devices that are key building blocks for photonics systems.

Our SOA optical amplifiers are offered alone as stock items or associated with a choice of low-noise CW or high-speed pulsed drivers. The GUI software of these drivers lets the user have total control of all module functions. It includes several libraries for software integration (LabVIEW VIs, DLLs, Hexa, Python, Linux etc.).


Key features

  • 4 SOA optical amplifiers models around 785, 1030/1064, 1310 or 1550 nm.
  • All stock items have PM fibres and are polarisation dependent. The 1310 nm and 1550 nm models are also available as polarisation independent devices.
  • High gain (>25-35 dB) and high output power (>100 mW / 20 dBm)
  • High extinction ratio : >>50 dB
  • High speed : down to 500 ps rise/fall time
  • Compatible with our “user design temporal nanosecond pulse shape” driver (SOA-Shape)
  • Compact devices with very low noise and stable signals
  • Broad and flat optical bandwidth
  • SOA optical amplifiers maintain the narrow optical linewidth of an input CW signal while amplifying and/or producing very short pulses.
  • Scroll down to see all butterfly modules configurations with our turn-key CW or short pulsed driver
