Keywordsbooster amplifiers, InAlGaAs-InAlAs, InAlGaAs-InAlAs bottom DBRs, InGaAs, InGaAs multiple quantum well active region, InP, InP substrate, laser noise, long-wavelength directly modulated VCSEL transmission, metro networks, metropolitan area networks, optical amplifier noise figure, optical fibre networks, optical modulation, optical transmitters, quantum well lasers, semiconductor optical amplifiers, SOAs, surface emitting lasers

The authors demonstrate the viability of high-performance vertical cavity surface emitting lasers transmission with semiconductor optical amplifiers as a low-cost alternative to distributed-feedback erbium-doped fiber amplifier systems. They study the effect of the optical amplifier noise figure on metro networks.
