Paper Abstract

This paper describes a newly developed compact high reliability fiber coupled laser diode which is capable of providing enhanced performance under extreme environmental conditions including a very wide operating temperature range. Careful choice of package materials to minimize thermal and mechanical stress, used with proven manufacturing methods, has resulted in highly stable coupling of the optical fiber pigtail to a high performance MOCVD- grown Multi-Quantum Well laser chip. Electro-optical characteristics over temperature are described together with a demonstration of device stability over a range of environmental conditions. Real time device lifetime data is also presented.
