I need to modulate an RF signal (random sine wave acting as data) using the 1550nm DFB Laser Diode, I need a control circuit to drive the Laser Diode and inject the data to modulate the LD carrier wave. I won't mind if you provide me with the complete circuit just as long as you can explain to me step by step the purpose of each part of it, I'm sure this break down will help those that read this to benefit from this question.
The carrier would be the optical wave and the source signal will be an analog continuous wave, i will be using a function generator to create this wave. This means i will modulate the optical wave using the analog wave and carry the modulated wave through a single mode fiber, at the other end i will have a Photo diode and an oscilloscope to see my original signal.
I will be using a function generator to create the RF signal so there is no restriction to the frequency i can use, it can be low or high. The specs of the LD say that the max operating voltage is 1.7V and the max operating current is 90mA. Since i am not sure what else is needed i can provide more information if necessary,the LD is WSLP-1550-008m-9-DFB.
Thanks in advance.
