Semiconductor-based optical amplifiers (SOAs) offer solutions to a variety of amplification requirements covering operational wavelengths ranging from 600 to 1600 nm. This letter reports on the design and performance of buried heterostructure SOA modules exhibiting state-of-the-art performance within the 1300-nm operational window. The first, a high-gain variant, is optimized for preamplification applications while the second is designed for use as a booster amplifier. Record low noise figure performances for packaged devices are reported.
