From the products used in the optical communication field, its function is to convert the complete electrical signal to the optical signal. In this system, mainly including LD, PD chip, non spherical lens, optical isolator and single-mode fiber. From the input signal to drive the LD chip light emitting; optical signal by non spherical lens coupled to a single-mode fiber.
From the LD chip to realize the electro-optical conversion, PD chip LD chip to monitor the optical power, monitoring the operation. Non spherical lens as an optical component, play the role of optical focus. Ensure that the light isolator one-way transmission, eliminate light reflection.
Function: photoelectric conversion function realization of optical signal to electrical signal. As detectors and receivers in optical fiber communications.
The fiber output light signal through the lens cap TO to PD on the photosensitive surface, the current PD signal generated by the transimpedance amplifier (TIA) amplification of the output voltage signal to the external circuit.
Function: to achieve a single fiber multiplexing downlink optical signal.
By emitting a light signal provided by LD TO, the TO signal through the emission cap convergence, through WDM filter, coupled into optical fiber.
By receiving the optical signal from the optical fiber WDM filter, to reflection, after receiving the TO lens cap to the receiving chip on the photosensitive surface.
Application for P2P/EPON/GPON network
DWDM (sub L band and C band)
L band from 1610.06~1564.68 each septum 0.8nm, including 54
C band from 1563.86~1530.33 each septum 0.8nm, including 45
CWDM (1270-1610 each interval 20nm, including 18 bands)
The different wavelength has different loss
The 1380nm near the hydroxide particle absorption, fiber loss increased sharply, commonly known as water peak
The ITU-T band single-mode fiber over 1260nm E, divided O, S, C, L, U band
Easy to see that, in the 6 bands, C band and L band have minimum loss
Where is the optical transceiver module used?
