Paper Abstract

This paper explores the development of cascade semiconductor lasers for communications applications. Both interband and intersubband cascade emission devices are examined theoretically and experimentally. The motivation for cascade sources in both high fidelity and high bandwidth applications is presented. The ability to transmit signals with lower signal loss and improved noise performance is verified by measurements on a model systems consisting of series coupled DFB lasers.
