Paper Abstract

We have developed a 1.55um superluminesent diode using a revolutionary structure. A light diffusion surface is placed diagonally on the active layer within the device to suppress the lasing action, and V—groove structure is applied to achieve high coupling efficiency into a single—mode fiber. Superluminescent diode characteristics were achieved in the range from 0 to 50C, and the coupled power into a single—mode fiber reached 0.5mW.
