Intensity noise suppression using a semiconductor optical amplifier: characterisations and applications

Intensity noise suppression using a semiconductor optical amplifier: characterisations and applications
Intensity noise suppression using a semiconductor optical amplifier: characterisations and applications
In this thesis I present a comprehensive system-level study of the intensity noise suppression offered by a saturated semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA), and its application to high channel count spectrum-sliced and optical code division multiplexed (OCDMA) systems incorporating low-cost incoherent light sources. Preliminary investigations into incorporating a saturated SOA to reduce low frequency noise of a highly coherent fibre distributed feedback laser are also presented.

Abstract

In this thesis I present a comprehensive system-level study of the intensity noise suppression offered by a saturated semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA), and its application to high channel count spectrum-sliced and optical code division multiplexed (OCDMA) systems incorporating low-cost incoherent light sources. Preliminary investigations into incorporating a saturated SOA to reduce low frequency noise of a highly coherent fibre distributed feedback laser are also presented.
