ultra-wideband (UWB), semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA), cross-gain modulation (XGM)
We propose a novel scheme for generating ultra-wideband doublet signal based on the cross-gain modulation effect in a semiconductor optical amplifier. This scheme requires only a semiconductor optical amplifier and an optical source. By using OptiSystem software, we simulate and analyze the effect of the input signal light power and wavelength, the pulse width and injection current on the generated doublet pulse. In addition, the optimal range of parameters are also given in the simulation process.
