Abstract
A GaAs/GaAlAsintegrated optoelectronic transmitter has been developed for wideband operation at 1 to4 GHz. This transmitter combines a GaAS/GaA1AS single-quantum-well (SQW) ridge-waveguide laserwith a GaAs MESFET driver circuit. The single stage driver circuit has an rf gain of 9 dB and is impedance matched to both the low resistance laserload and the 50 W microwave input by using reactive MMIC components. This design results in a nearly flat frequency response in the band of interest A combination of both laser and MMIC fabrication processes has been used to realize the transmitter in the vertically integrated MOVPE-grown material.
