A rate equations model for the analysis and simulation of the dynamic behaviour of a Fabry-Perot semiconductor laser amplifier is presented. The model includes the incident radiation and the dependence of the refraction index on the instantaneous carrier density in the active layer and may be applied to the study of transient effects of short width pulses. Simulation and numerical results show the limitations about relaxation and switching times and their relation to amplifier supplied optical and electrical power. These times determine, respectively, the highest transmission speed and the smallest width of the amplifier input pulses. The possibility of achieving optical pulse reshaping is discussed in this work making use of the unwished transitory pick obtained during gain-switching.
