High-performance 1.3 μ laser diodes have been developed which make fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) applications possible in the near future. These lasers offer the potential to render the high-cost components inside the transmitter dispensable and greatly reduce the cost of transmitters. These lasers does not require TE coolers and feature small linewidths which are attributed mainly to the small intraband relaxation times of AlGaInAs narrow quantum wells. Low cost fabrications, tight lot-to-lot control, excellent device yield and uniform parameter distributions have been simultaneously achieved.
