Reflective Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers (RSOAs) offer a cost effective wavelength agnostic transmitter for applications within wavelength division multiplexed passive optical networks (WDM PONs). The parametric and systems performance of bulk active buried heterostructure RSOAs across the S, C and L wavelength bands is given.
