Item description for Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers by Nilroy K. Dutta & Qiang Wang...

This invaluable book provides a comprehensive treatment of the design and applications of the semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA). SOAs are important components for optical communication systems with applications as in-line amplifiers and as functional devices in evolving optical networks. The functional applications of SOAs were first studied in the early 1990s; since then, the diversity and scope of such applications have been steadily growing. "Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers" is self-contained and unified in presentation. The treatments in the book are detailed enough to capture the interest of the curious reader and sufficiently complete to provide the necessary background to explore the subject further. It is intended to be used as an advanced text by graduate students and by practicing engineers but is also suitable for non-experts who wish to have an overview of optical amplifiers.

Reviews - What do customers think about Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers?

riddled with typos; book was never proofread  Jan 28, 2008
The authors clearly never proof read the book. Worse, neither did the publisher, World Scientific. As a result, there are numerous distracting errors. Quite pervasive. Like "The majority carries are holes in the p-cladding layer ...". Carries should be carriers. Then there is "Epitaxial growth of amplifier materials are described in Chapter 4". Another example is "The commercial use of semiconductor optical amplifiers are projected to be in the form...". All these examples were drawn just from the Introduction, which is not encouraging. Lots more in the rest of the text.

As to the book's topic, it describes semiconductor optical amplifiers as closely related to, but distinct from semiconductor lasers. The key difference is that the SOA does not have the multiple reflections that lasers use to boost the overall gain.

Over half the book is mostly about issues that could well pertain to general semiconductor design and theory. The meat of the text comes towards the end, when there is explanation of the ways you can use SOAs. Especially to aid optical logic, with its inherently fast switching speeds.
