Paper Abstract

A central advantage of optical communication over cable technology is the potential for long distance transmission at very high data rates. Above 200 Mb/s the modulation capability of the laser source becomes a significant factor in establishing system performance. We review here the current understanding of phenomena which limit laser diode performance at high data rates in fiber optical systems.
