Record High Power 13dBm Electro-Absorption Modulated Laser for 50G-PON

Abstract: We present a 50Gb/s electro-absorption modulated laser emitting at 1342-1358nm and optimised to provide high output power and efficient modulator extinction. With a record modulated output power of >13dBm (ex-facet) and a 6dB dynamic extinction ratio it can serve for 50G-PON as unamplified transmitter.
