We demonstrate the first few-mode semiconductor optical amplifier (FM SOA) that supports up to four waveguide modes. We show that each of the modes are confined to the waveguide, overlapping the quantum wells with approximately the same amount, leading to equalized gain for each of the four waveguide modes.
