Laser Transmitters
1010606Laser TransmittersRevolutions in optics are infrequent but, in the case of lasers and laser diodes, the impact was immediate and profound. Although it took the conjunction of the invention of many complementary technologies [lasers, fibers, detectors, erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFAs), and so forth] to make large optical telecom networks possible, much of the success depends on the ability to cheaply and efficiently create the transmitters that generate and repeat the modulated beams of light that carry information.In addition to enabling communication systems, lasers have fou…
