Paper Abstract

A 1.3-micron wavelength optical transmitter system with a 2-GHz bandwidth centered at 20 GHz has been implemented by actively mode-locking a semiconductor laser diode and then modulating the signal externally. The performance of a link using this transmitter over a 2-km fiber is evaluated. A hybrid package is developed for a mode-locked laser submodule operating at 15 GHz.
