"Nanostructure Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers" reviews all-optical processing methods currently available and presents semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs) as a new building block for this purpose.
The authors discuss the overcomes of high frequency operation of SOAs and propose a new all-optical pumping method for the implementation of semiconductor optical amplifiers. From the reviews: "This book mainly focuses on quantum-dot-based semiconductor optical amplifiers.
It includes basic principles, design and simulation methods, optical characterizations, high-speed switching performances and functional applications. It is well organized, and it includes references in each chapter.
... A very good guide for graduate students as well as researchers and engineers working in the research and development of semiconductor optical amplifiers and all-optical signal processing."
