Paper Abstract

Improved, yet cost-effective laser-based analog video transmitters are required for single mode fiber for video distribution to subscribers. Both Fabry-Perot and DFB lasers in the 1300 nm and 1550 nm regions are commercially available which facilitate transmission of both digital and analog video signals. Three representative system applications of such devices explored recently by Bellcore are described with emphasis on desirable laser characteristics and requirements which govern overall performance.
