Paper Abstract

Intermodulation and harmonic distortions of buried heterostructure distributed feedback lasers can be low enough for many applications, like cable television and microwave subcarrier transmissions. This paper discusses the theoretical analysis and measured values of these distortions. The results indicate that the nonlinearities of lasers are dependent on the modulation frequency, the operating temperature, and the physical structure of the lasers.
