Manufacturers of laser diodes use dedicated equip-ment to characterize these devices, which is expensive and, in most cases, unavailable to engineers who intend to use the laser diodes in the design of optical transmitters. This article is intended to pro-vide cost effective and reliable methods that allow quick and accurate measurements of critical laser diode parameters.
