Paper Abstract

InGaAsP/InP double heterostructure light-emitting diodes (LEDs) provide an excellent source for fiber optic transmitters because of the low transmission losses and minimal material dispersion in silica fibers, which is characteristic of 1.3 μm wavelength transmission. Life testing is performed on a line of commercially available LEDs at both DC and a typical pulse condition. Homogeneous degradation kinetics are derived for current and temperature acceleration.
