Abstract

The automatic polarization dependent gain compensation in semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOA) using contact monitoring was studied. The filtering of the photo-detected signals within SOA allowed enhanced control of the signals. The results showed that the use of filtered measurements of photodetected signals in SOA developed a simple control loop which compensated for polarization dependent gain levels by 3 dB.
