Paper Abstract

The theoretical gain/bandwidth limitations for directly modulated fiber-optic (FO) links are examined. Design curves are presented which enable one to determine the photodiode RC time constant which yields the minimum link loss for a specified receiver bandwidth. The insertion loss characteristics are examined for FO links subject to broadband impedance matching where purely reactive elements are used.
