Abstract

The beam properties of tapered semiconductor optical amplifiers emitting at 1.57 μm are analyzed by means of simulations with a self-consistent steady state electro-optical and thermal simulator. The results indicate that the self-focusing caused by carrier lensing is delayed to higher currents for devices with taper angle slightly higher than the free diffraction angle.
