An electrical post-compensation scheme for semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) impairments has been proposed. An on-off keying (OOK) transmission over 100 km standard single mode fiber (SSMF) and three SOAs was demonstrated experimentally with SOA impairment compensation. An 8dB improvement in Q-factor has been achieved.
