Abstract

Ten Gb/s low power penalty (< 0.5 dB) error-free transmission was achieved through 75 km using a high-performance sampled-grating (SG) distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) laser/EAM transmitter. Large signal chirp measurements show negative chirp operation across the entire tuning range of the devices. An integration-oriented quantum-well-intermixing (QWI) process was employed for the realization of these devices.
