A Black Box Model for the quick complete characterization of the optical gain and amplified spontaneous emission noise in Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers is presented and verified experimentally. This model provides good accuracy, even neglecting third order terms in the spectral gain shift, and can provide cost reduction in SOA characterization and design as well as provide simple algorithms for hybrid integration in-package control.
