Abstract

This chapter presents a comprehensive report on our work on dilute nitride vertical cavity semiconductor optical amplifiers. It includes a presentation of a theoretical analysis of the components and a summary of the experimental assessment of monolithic and fibre-based tunable devices operated in the continuous-wave regime. In particular, it is shown how some material parameters can be extracted from this device continuous-wave characterization or from gain-dynamics experiments. Current investigations on the extension of the operation towards the 1,550nm telecommunication band conclude this review.
