In this letter, we have developed a tandem electroabsorption modulator with an integrated semiconductor optical amplifier that is capable of both nonreturn-to-zero and return-to-zero (RZ) data transmission at 40 Gb/s. The tandem modulator consists of a broad-band data encoder and a narrow-band pulse carver. The pulse carver is able to produce 5-ps pulses with more than 20 dB of extinction. The on-chip semiconductor optical amplifier provides up to 8.5 dB of fiber-to-fiber gain and enables the… CONTINUE READING
