We investigate the yield of 10-Gb/s electroabsorption modulator integrated-distributed feedback (EAMI-DFB) lasers for 40- and 60-km transmissions due to the chirp. The yield has been estimated from the effective positive chirp (EPC) capable to transmit signals over 40 and 60 km within 2-dB dispersion power penalty. The signals with EPC of 0.48 and 0.24 /spl Aring/ can be transmitted over 40 and 60 km with less than 2-dB power penalty, respectively. The chirp is calculated from a large signal dynamic model of EAMI-DFB lasers using the time-dependent transfer matrix method (TMM). The results suggest that the yield is mostly dependent on coupling constant (/spl kappa/L) and should be set around 1.3 for high yield while maintaining low facet reflectivity at modulator.
