Abstract

We report development of a monolithically-grown GaInNAs/GaAs vertical amplifier for 1.3 /spl mu/m operation. When optically-pumped using a 980 nm fibre-coupled diode, demonstration of up to 17.7 dB of on-chip gain has been realised. Amplification with 12.8 dB peak gain, 12 GHz bandwidth and saturation output power of -4.8 dBm is also reported.
