10 gbit/s transmission over 50 km nonzero dispersion-shifted fibre using 1.3 μm directly modulated uncooled transmitters


Journal Article

A 1.3 μm uncooled transmitter with wide-open eye diagrams at laser temperatures of 20, 50, and 85°C is presented. Using this transmitter, it is demonstrated that 10 Gbit/s transmission is possible over a 50 km nonzero dispersion-shifted Lucent TrueWave-RS fibre. This result is compared with transmission over a 55 km standard singlemode fibre.
