The capability of a birefringent fiber loop to suppress the pattern effect in a semiconductor optical amplifier is experimentally demonstrated. The results verify that compared to direct signal amplification this scheme achieves reduced amplitude modulation, enhanced eye diagram extinction ratio, pulse reshaping, tolerance to long string of spaces, low power penalty, and extended input power dynamic range.
