Abstract

We have demonstrated that spatial gain modulation in a segmented semiconductor optical amplifier can be converted to a temporal signal. A four-segment amplifier was used to generate digital return-to-zero patterns at 40 Gbits/s , and this technique should be readily scalable to more than 100 Gbits/s .
