Laser Sources for Optical Transceivers

Laser Sources for Optical Transceivers

Optical transceivers use different semiconductor laser sources depending mainly on the reach and bit rate that the device has to guarantee. In this paper we will describe the most commonly used types and their application. We will skip the physics of the laser and semiconductors; we will focus only on the technological aspects of each device.
