We derive analytic expressions for the small-signal modulation response of the transistor laser (TL) operating in the common-emitter (CE) and common-base (CB) configurations. We compare the performance (current gain and small-signal modulation bandwidth) of the TL in these two modes of operation. The CE operation results in a small-signal modulation response with the same relaxation oscillation limitations as conventional lasers. The CB configuration shows a bandwidth enhancement due to a… CONTINUE READING
