Effect of reflection on un-isolated spot-size-converted 1.3 μm DFB lasers for 2.5 Gbit/s transmission


Conference Paper

Spot-size-converted 1.3 μm distributed feedback laser transmitter modules for 2.5 Gbit/s transmission, were fabricated. The laser was mounted on a submount, and fiber coupling was done passively. Reflection was defined as the ratio of optical power coming back into the transmitter. The lasers satisfied the SDH/SONET requirements for 15 km transmission with strong reflection up to -16.5 dB at various locations.
