Abstract

The voltage modulation of transistor lasers (TLs) through Franze–Keldysh absorption can impose an unconventional chirp on optical signals. In this Letter, we model this chirp effect and demonstrate how the output Gaussian pulse is reshaped through optical fibers. It is shown that pre-chirped pulses of TLs may be compressed in fibers with both normal and anomalous dispersions.
