Paper Abstract

Semiconductor light sources and detectors keep the major share of the telecommunication and local area network market. Diode laser and detector structures are also massively produced in the course of many application and research projects. Usually research work includes: understanding physical phenomena governing device performance, device modeling and fabrication. A number of steps however, have to be completed before one can use the device in a real-life system or sell it. To exemplify details of fiber optic detectors and transmitters fabrication, a didactic-purpose fabrication line has been assembled. The following paper presents results of a project aimed at producing some fiber optic telecommunication devices during students laboratory work.
