Paper Abstract

Using an uncoated monolithic single-contact distributed feedback (DFB) laser, transmission of 2 Mb/s data at a subcarrier frequency of 35 GHz over 2.2 km of optical fiber by resonant modulation is demonstrated. Modulation response of 60 MHz with more than 1 GHz of enhancement at round trip frequency, carrier-to-noise ratio and bit-error-rate results are reported. The tolerance of the resonant round-trip frequency to the DFB facet cleaving process and the device length uncertainty due to cleaving is also addressed in detail by computer simulation.
