Paper Abstract

This paper presents the results of the design and fabrication of a 1.25 Gb/s wideband light emitting diode-based transmitter which employs a commercial LED as the optical source. The transmitter is capable of launching -13 dBm of optical power into a 100/140 micrometers optical fiber. The wide bandwidth and high optical power are achieved by using an active matching and filtering technique. A prototype MMIC LED transmitter demonstrated a bandwidth of 350 MHz to 1.35 GHz. A design with a predicted 3 dB electrical bandwidth from few hundred megahertz to several gigahertz is given.
