Abstract
Several aspects of the direct modulation characteristics of semiconductor lasers are discussed, including a brief review of some basic theory and a description of a computer-controlled measurement technique. Methods of extending the modulation bandwidth by changing external and internal parameters are also discussed. Proton-isolated tilted-facet and Zn-diffused window and continuous-stripe lasers are used as examples of devices which allow the modulation bandwidth to be controlled by varying parameters such as the photon lifetime, the spontaneous emission factor, and other aspects of the cavity 0. Measurements demonstrating modulation bandwidths of 6 to 7 GHz are also presented.
