Polarization dependace of semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA)

  1. Jan 11, 2009 #1

    could you explain me

    polarization dependence of SOA amplifiers.


    how to transfer the transverse electric (TE) mode to transverse magnetic (TM) mode. Are there any passive components to do it?

    Unfortunately you will not get the answers straight up, but to start you off the following text will help with direct answers to your questions.

    -See Ch14

    If you have any questions specifically relating to the polarization dependence in SOA's or how TE modes are converted to TM then ask those :biggrin:
