Abstract

The semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) can be used as an efficient high-speed modulator. This paper presents optical subcarrier multiplexed label swapping/reinsertion utilizing this device associated to the wavelength converter block in packet-switched all-optical networks. For that purpose, the modulation response and nonlinear behavior of SOAs are analyzed and experimentally demonstrated.
