Paper Abstract

Optical sources using GaAlAs emitting at 850nm for fibre optic communication have been the subject of intensive research and development. Lasers have proved themselves ideal for long haul high bandwidth applications, where their high power and fast response time are unmatched. However, high radiance LEDs capable of launching several hundred microwatts of power into optical fibres will play an important role in medium and low bandwidth systems over relatively short transmission lengths.
