Abstract

Modulational instability of continuous waves in transmission systems with semiconductor optical amplifiers and in-line filters was theoretically and experimentally analyzed. Stable and unstable domains were identified. Even in the normal-dispersion region, modulationally unstable domains can exist for an appropriate filter detuning.
