We describe the operation of a semiconductor laser amplifier as a nonlinear element, using a novel three-wavelength configuration, which enhances the recovery rate of the nonlinear refractive index and permits choice of its sign and magnitude. Simple rate-equation analysis suggests that 100-GHz operation should be possible with powers of ~1 W.
