ST Laser Diodes

The laser diode employed was developed for the Tracker analog data links. It is designed and produced by ST Microelectronics. It consists of an edge-emitting laser diode emitting light (&lambda = 1310 nm) into a single-mode optical fiber bonded to the transmitter package and exiting the package in pigtail form. The transmitter package is glued and wire-bonded to the GOH.
