Abstract:

This is the final report for a contract to develop superluminescent LEDs SLEDs for use with graded-index multimode fibers. The basic technical objective is to develop a SLED which can couple at least 500 micro W to power into a standard 0.20 NA 50-um core graded-index fiber at a drive current not exceeding 200 milli A. The program objectives have been met and exceeded. Three devices mounted in a standard package with thermo-electric cooler TEC and graded-index fiber pigtail have been shipped to the customer.
