Resumen

A 2.5 Gb/s differential binary phase-shift keying (DPSK) transmitter based on direct phase modulation of a vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSEL) using its own chirp is proposed. The VCSEL, which has a wavelength of 1539.84 nm, has been characterized both statically and dynamically. The sensitivity of a single photodiode heterodyne receiver using the proposed 2.5 Gb/s VCSEL transmitter is -39.5 dBm. Thus, this transmitter is an extremely cost-effective solution for future access networks. (C) 2017 Optical Society of America
