A theoretical and experimental investigation of the intensity noise reduction induced by two-photon absorption in a Er,Yb:Glass laser is reported. The time response of the two-photon absorption mechanism is shown to play an important role on the behavior of the intensity noise spectrum of the laser. A model including an additional rate equation for the… (More)
A 1 Gbps 105.4 GHz wireless link is demonstrated by directly modulating a photonic integrated dual-laser source. A 50 m link is predicted to be able to achieve error free operation using FEC following optimisation.
