Gigabit fiber optic data links with transmission speeds of up to 2 Gb/s and distances of up to 2 km for multimode fibers were demonstrated using low-cost and short wavelength semiconductor lasers. The semiconductor laser used for high-speed fiber optic data links is a 780 nm device similar to those that are currently in high volume product in the compact disc (CD) industry. This suggests that a CD laser with multimode fiber and its simple receptacle package design may be more usable for the short-range nature of low-cost gigabit fiber optic link applications than has previously been considered to be practical.
