Abstract
It is demonstrated that an ultra-high speed window buried heterostructure GaAlAs laser fabricated on semi-insulating substrate can be used as narrow band signal transmitters in the Ku-band frequency range (12-20GHz). The modulation efficiency can be increased over a limited bandwidth by a weak optical feedback. A stronger optical feedback enables one to actively mode-lock the laser diode at a very high repetition rate up to 17.5GHz, producing pulses of = 12ps long.
