Paper Abstract

Directly modulated lasers at 1310 nm are useful as low cost short haul high speed transmitters. High speed requires large differential gain and high damping. Low cost dictates that the device can operate without a thermoelectric cooler (TEC) to temperatures of 85 C, preferably without introducing exotic designs or material features. A multiple quantum well (MQW) ridge waveguide (RWG) gain coupled (GC) distributed feedback (DFB) InGaAsP laser grown by metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) satisfies the above requirements.
