Paper Abstract

The fiber optics technology based on discrete components is rapidly maturing. Sources are commercially available at the 0.82 - 0.85 μm and 1.3 μm wavelength windows in fiber loss characteristics. The detector technology at present is dominated by Si and Ge detectors owing to their advanced state of technological development. While systems being installed are almost exclusively based on GaAlAs/GaAs sources and Si detectors, there is an inevitable trend to longer wavelengths for long distance systems owing to superior fiber loss and dispersion characteristics. These applications dominate the research interests of companies involved in telecommunications.
