Paper Abstract

During the last several years a number of different transmitter options have been developed for the distribution of video signals over fiber optic links. These options, for the AM-SCM modulation format, include intensity-modulated DFM lasers and externally modulated CW light sources. In this paper several design alternatives are reviewed in terms of intrinsic performance and suitability for linearization. Laboratory data are also presented for a 1550 nm transmitter comprising a linearized external modulator and fiber amplifier.
