1300-nm Strained Quantum Well Lasers For Fiber-Optic Communications
This paper describes new uncooled strained quantum well lasers for SONET/ SDH systems. New Fabry-Perot lasers for short-haul and intermediate link applications are extremely reliable, have high ex-facet power, and have record low threshold currents, making lower packaging costs possible. Uncooled distributed feedback lasers for the long-haul market at 622 Mbits/s and 2.488 Gbits/s are discussed. These operate from -40°C to +85°C with extremely good threshold and power characteristics.
