Paper Abstract

We present data on the wide temperature operation of a high speed data link operating at nominally 1 micrometer wavelength. The single mode fiber packaged transmitter running at 1.2 GBit/s consists of a high speed laser diode packaged with a commercial laser driver chip. The laser is not cooled in any manner over the temperature range of operation and the link operates with low error rates without an optical isolator. The single mode fiber packaged receiver consists of a high speed photodiode packaged with a combination of a commercial transimpedance amplifier and a limiting amplifier.
