Paper Abstract

The application of high-power single-emitter lasers to coherent optical communication in studied. Measurements of laser properties essential to heterodyne detection systems are presented for high-power lasers and compared to standard single-mode 30-mW laser diodes. The advantages of the new high-power laser structures are demonstrated in a heterodyne frequency-shift-keyed communication system.
