Un-Cooled 10 Gb/s dilute-nitride optical transmitters for the 1300 nm wavelength range
Paper in proceedings, 2008

Dilute-nitride-based edge-emitting Fabry-Perot lasers with record performances have been used to build un-cooled optical transceiver modules. The paper presents and analyses some of the achieved performances starting from chip level to optical link transmission experiments. The studies, performed within the EU-FP6 project FAST ACCESS, prove that the dilute-nitride GaInAsN lasers are a good solution for low-cost un-cooled transmitters targeting short and medium distance optical communications in a wide range of applications, from supercomputers and server farms to metropolitan and access area networks.
