Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


NRZ and RZ data transmission at 40Gb/s are demonstrated for the first time using buried heterostructure tandem electro-absorption modulators monolithically integrated with a semiconductor optical amplifier and input/output spot-size converters. Zero penalty RZ transmission over a 100km dispersion managed link is achieved.
