Paper Abstract

The performance of injection lasers in the last couple of years has improved substantially in terms of the reliability, linearity and the threshold current. It is now possible to make a laser that operates in a single transverse mode with a power level of over 5mW with very low thresholds. Furthermore, it has been reported that laser diodes can operate as long as 1 million hours at room temperature. Therefore, it is believed that for high data rates and long distance communications applications, the injection laser is going to be the light source used in the future.
