In this paper we investigate, for the first time, gain and phase dynamics in semiconductor laser amplifier (SLA) based monolithically integrated asymmetric Mach Zehnder interferometers (MZIs) by pump-probe experiments and develop a model to explain the interdependencies of various design relevant parameters. In addition, implications of fast intraband effects for all-optical demultiplexing and add-drop multiplexing using the MZI devices are discussed.
