External-fiber-grating vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers

A Bragg grating in graded-index multimode fiber was coupled to a 0.8-/spl mu/m VCSEL. By using a fiber Bragg grating, the spectral width of the VCSEL decreased to 1/2-1/3 of the initial value, depending on the temperature of the fiber Bragg grating. The minimum spectral width was less than 0.1 nm FWHM. Data transmission using 1-km graded-index multimode… CONTINUE READING
