The fabrication and performance of GaInAsP/InP LEDs emitting at 1.3 microns is described. These devices are hermetically sealed into microwave pill packages and the use of micro-lens coupling enables power outputs up to -13 dBm to be achieved. Detection of 1.3 micrcn radiation is achieved using the PIN FET approach in which a GaInAs/GaAs photodiode and GaAs FET chip are assembled on a thick film hybrid circuit and hermetically sealed with a fibre pigtail into a metal DIL package. Device performance and construction is detailed. Current best performance of -52.4 dBm and -45 dBm at 41 and 160 Mbauds respectively have been achieved. Life test results are reviewed. These components are currently being used in transmission systems being installed by Plessey Telecommunications Ltd.
