Paper Abstract

A packaged high speed reflective electroabsorption transceivers for radio-over-fiber applications is demonstrated. The transceiver, an AFPMD (Asymmetric vertically addressed Fabry-Perot Modulator/Detector), is successfully packaged into a standard module, originally intended for 10 Gbit/s Ethernet detectors. The packaging process and the electrical, optical and thermal performance of the packaged component are presented. A bandwidth of 6 GHz, a total reflective optical coupling loss of 7.1 dB and a responsitivity of 0.14 mA/mW are accomplished. By optimizing the operation optical wavelength and bias voltage, fifth-order nonlinearity dominates the intermodulation distortion and a spurious free dynamic range (SFDR) of 101dB.Hz4/5 at 5.554GHz can be achieved experimentally.
