In this paper, a theoretical review of semiconductor optical fibre amplifiers is reported. Semiconductors are formed from compounds in group III and IV of the periodic table. They have indirect band gap and possess the ability to emit light rather than heat. Here, a detailed theoretical review of semiconductor optical fibre history, principle of operation, types of semiconductor optical fibre amplifiers and their applications are presented.
