Abstract

The authors used an HRO DFB laser to demonstrate the highest minus 3 db IM frequency measured in a single-frequency long-wavelength laser. Further, they present data on frequency modulation of the laser and showed that an FM index of 1. 43 could be obtained even at modulation frequencies as high as 15 GHz. This property should be useful for frequency shift keyed systems with very high modulation frequencies. Finally, the authors suggest a standard, the CPR, by which different semiconductor lasers and different laser structures can be compared for a particular application.
