APPLICATION NOTE 1092

HFAN-02.3.1: Maintaining Average Power and Extinction Ratio, Part 1, Slope Efficiency and Threshold Current


Abstract: The purpose of this application note series (Part 1 and Part 2) is to demonstrate by practical examplehow the laser properties can change over temperature and how to compensate for these changes inorder to maintain constant extinction ratio and average power in fiber optic transceivers.
