We investigate the below-switching-threshold-properties of a helically bistable laser with helical wave injection. We find that this system shows amplification of the injection signal (optical transistor). We measure the amplification as a function of modulation frequency and frequency offset between the amplifying laser and the injected radiation. Good agreement is found with the corresponding laser model.
