Abstract

The detection properties of the semiconductor laser amplifier have been examined by several authors, e. g. Gustavsson et al.1 have analysed a Near Travelling Wave Optical Amplifier (NTWOA) for simultaneous amplification and detection. Shoa and Koch2 have theoretically studied the static and dynamical characteristics of semiconductor narrow-band tunable resonant optical amplifiers as active filters and receivers.
