Philippe, S. and Bradley, A. L. and Surre F. Kennedy, B. and Landais, P. 'Dynamics of non-linear polarization rotation in semiconductor optical amplifiers' in Proceedings of 9th International Conference on Transparent Optical Networks, International Conference on Transparent Optical Networks, Rome, July 2007, 2, 2007, pp. 243 – 246.
A free space contra-propagation set-up is implemented and a dynamic pump-probe study of a SOA in the picosecond regime is undertaken. The dynamics of the change in the probe state of polarisation is investigated and the implications for polarisation switching discussed. Polarisation resolved detection is shown to enhance switching performance for carefully chosen polarizer orientation.
