Paper Abstract

Monolithic laser arrays, used in a "cold stand-by" redundancy mode, offer a means of achieving high availability with high packaging density in fiber-optic computer data link transmitters. A model is proposed for studying the possible transmitter availability improvement, compared to the single laser case, and some theoretical results are described.
