The temperature dependence of GaAs and InP SOA materials is investigated experimentally in this work. The direct comparison study verified that Dilute Nitrides are less temperature sensitive showing enhanced thermal stability on ASE spectrum and gain measurements in CW mode. Wavelength Conversion experiment at 10 Gb/s verified that GaAs SOA keeps up with the fast gain dynamics and the proper data processing at elevated temperatures while the performance of InP material is drastically degraded by heating the SOA device.
