Rate Equations for modeling dispersive nonlinearity in Fabry-Perot semiconductor optical amplifiers.


We model the non-linear gain characteristics of a Fabry-Perot semiconductor optical amplifier using a modified photon density rate equation. Good agreement is found with experimental results, with the simulation accurately reproducing all the major characteristics of the amplifier. To our knowledge, this is the first calculation using only the rate equations that accurately predicts the gain and nonlinear behavior of FPSOAs.
