A theory of small signal frequency response of four-wave mixing (FWM) in a traveling wave semiconductor optical amplifier has been developed. The bandwidth of FWM is ≫300 GHz. For large wavelength separation between the input signals, where the nonlinear gain effects dominate the generation of FWM, the bandwidth of the FWM signal exceeds 1 THz. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
