Short-haul fiber-optic communication systems require high-speed semiconductor lasers that can operate uncooled over a wide temperature range. We describe high-speed short-cavity InGaAs-GaAs multiple-quantum-well lasers operating at 1.1-μm wavelength. The Fabry-Perot lasers were fabricated in a triple-mesa geometry suitable for on-wafer probing. With 3×200 μm2 ridge-waveguide lasers, which showed the best compromise between high-temperature and high-speed performance, a 3-dB modulation bandwidth of 14.5 GHz at 130/spl deg/C was achieved. Uncooled 20-Gb/s operation of these lasers is presented over a wide-temperature range from 25/spl deg/C to 130/spl deg/C without automatic power control.
