Paper Abstract

Optical communication systems operating at 10Gbit/s require transceivers of low cost, size and power consumption, driving a "hot" source solution. This paper describes the current status of these "hot" devices for different applications. 10 Gb uncooled FP (Fabry Perot) to be used in conjunction with an EDC (Electronic Dispersion Compensation) receiver for LRM transceivers and 10 Gb 1300nm uncooled EML (Electro-absorption Modulator Laser) for LR transceivers are the devices chosen for LAN (Local Area Network) applications (link up to 10 km. These laser sources can be used for different transceiver form factors: XENPAK, X2 and XFP.
