Paper Abstract

The insatiable desire for bandwidth has compelled many technological advances in communications system components over the last two decades. Fiber optics communications bandwidth has advanced at almost exponential rates with the developments of low-loss, singlemode fibers, EDFAs, and WDM technology which uses multiple lasers on a single fiber. The SilkRoad Corporation has taken a different approach to increasing available BW by using a single, but, very stable, laser and IR photodiode detectors of unparalleled BW.
