Abstract
This paper presents the AM-AM and AM-PM characteristics of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) based on a memory polynomial model. The coefficients of the behavioral model are extracted and validated by experimental results. The nonlinearity and memory effects of RSOA are demonstrated by its dynamic AM-AM and AM-PM characteristics.
