The design and performance characteristics of single-mode fiber-coupled laser and photodiode packages suitable for use in microwave RF or broadband transmission systems are discussed. The necessary packaging considerations to achieve laser and photodiode performance to 20 GHz are described. Mechanical, thermal, optical and microwave details of two laser packages and one photodiode package are given, and the optoelectronic characteristics of the packaged units are presented and discussed. It is shown that the intrinsic optoelectronic performance of the components is preserved to at least 20 GHz and that this performance is not affected by package design
