Paper Abstract

The push for high bit rates (above 1 Gb/s) and long unrepeatered fiber lengths (beyond 50 km) for transmission has spurred recent device research. Lasers with high bandwidth and/or high output power, and detectors with improved bandwidth, gain and noise characteristics all increase the system gain, or margin, permitting greater speeds and distances.
