An experimental and theoretical study of the effects of gain ripples in semiconductor optical amplifiers on lightwave systems at data rates in excess of 10 Gb/s is discussed. Significant system degradations, or even complete eye closure, occurred in an 11 Gb/s system due to the effect of large amplifier gain variations on the signals from a directly modulated distributed-feedback laser.<>
