Abstract
Today the technical equipment of many optical communication systems is particularly designed to enable extremly high data transmission rates. Unfortunately, the achievable data rates of fiber networks are strongly limited by fluctuating perturbations of the usually used semiconductor laser diode. In practice, these sensitive transmitters must operate with a high degree of spectral stability to avoid degradation of system performance by wavelength fluctuations, modal noise, and insufficient modulation characteristics. In fiber networks the undesired perturbations are caused by light reflected or scattered in the optical system back to the laser diode. To avoid this disadvantageous feedback, the application of an optical isolator is necessary.
