The fundamentals of high frequency semiconductor laser modulation will be reviewed with emphasis on the inherent limits to very high frequency modulation. The tradeoffs between high speed operation and high power operation will be presented along with suggestions to increase the laser bandwidth. Recent world wide progress will be described, including the experimental room temperature demonstrations of 25 GHz pulsed bandwidth and 18 GHz cw bandwidth. Theoretical calculations and experimental results for large signal modulation will be presented showing the relation between large and small signal modulation formats.
