Abstract (40-Word Limit): The pattern effect in semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) is experimentally investigated in 40Gbps coherent 16QAM transmissions. The pattern-dependent phase distortion reveals to strictly limit the operable range of SOA in ordinal coherent transceivers with linear equalizers.
