Examining distributed feedback (DFB) laser diodes, this title covers the underlying theory, commercial applications, necessary design criteria and future direction of this technology. The authors offer a description of the various effects that determine DFB laser diode behaviour, and also present modelling approaches, describe DFB laser performance aspects, lay out critical guidelines for DFB laser devices and their use in emerging, high-capacity optical transmission systems.
