An integrated package containing all the electro-optical elements of a fiber-optic transmitter has been developed by researchers at IBM. The package contains a semiconductor laser array, a cylindrical lens, and an array of optical fiber light guides. The components are mounted on a silicon wafer, which also contains thin-film drive electrodes for the lasers.
