Abstract

A broadband and low-polarization-sensitive multi-quantum well semiconductor optical amplifier with an asymmetric structure is reported for operation in the E-band wavelength range. A gain peak of 20 dB for a bandwidth of more than 50 nm is measured for both TE and TM polarizations. A maximum polarization sensitivity of 3 dB is measured for a broad wavelength range from 1340 to 1440 nm.
