Abstract

A basic result for the dynamic behavior of semiconductor lasers is combined with the propagation properties of optical fibers. The frequency chirp observed when a semiconductor laser is modulated gives an enhanced time–bandwidth product. Pulse compression due to fiber dispersion is shown to be directly related to the laser properties.
