Paper Abstract

Discrete Mode Laser Diodes (DMLDs) present an economic approach with a focus on high volume manufacturability of single mode lasers using a single step fabrication process. We report on a DMLD designed for operation in the 1550 nm window with high Side Mode Suppression Ratio (SMSR) over a wide temperature tuning range of -20 °C < T < 95 °C. Direct modulation rates as high as 10 Gbit/s are demonstrated at both 1550 nm and 1310 nm. Transmission experiments were also carried out over single mode fibre at both wavelengths. Using dispersion pre-compensation transmission from 0 to 60 km is demonstrated at 1550 nm with a maximum power penalty measured at 60 km of 3.6 dB.
