Paper Abstract

Optical communication systems operating at 10Gbit/s require transceivers of low cost, size and power consumption, driving a "hot" source solution. This paper describes the current status of these "hot" devices for different applications. 10 Gb uncooled FP (Fabry Perot) to be used in conjunction with an EDC (Electronic Dispersion Compensation) receiver for LRM transceivers and CWDM (Course Wavelength Division Multiplexing) 3.125 Gb DFB for LX4 transceivers are the devices chosen for enterprise network (link up to 300m), which can address the need to transmit data at 10 Gb on the legacy multimode fibers. 10 Gb uncooled 1300 nm DFB (Distributed FeedBack) and 10 Gb 1300nm uncooled EML (Electro-absorption Modulator Laser) for LR transceivers are the devices chosen for LAN (Local Area Network) applications (link up to 10 km). Finally 10 Gb 1550 nm EML are the devices chosen for Metro applications (links up to 40 Km and potentially 80 km), for single wavelength and DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) applications, so for those applications in which a directly modulated laser can not be used, due to the chromatic dispersion. All these laser sources can be used for different transceiver form factors: XENPAK, X2 and XFP.
