Paper Abstract

The optical noise of the set: DFB Laser + EOM has been investigated, in a medium frequency range. This noise characterization clearly shows that in most cases the modulator increases the noise level properly relevant to the laser emitter. However, far above threshold, the optical noise at the end of the modulator tends, in some specific cases, to the fundamental noise, that is to say the shot noise level.
