21st Century- the era of ‘information technology’ is exhibiting an aggressive growth. This growth is even faster with the use of modern Telecommunication Systems. In this optical communication plays a very important role with high speed and reliable communication. The optical communication systems primarily consists of optical transmitter and receiver.

An Optical transmitter is a hybrid electro-optical device, which converts electrical signal to optical form and inject the resulting signal into an optical fiber for transmission. The power of the signal injected was an important design parameter which indicates how much fiber loss can be tolerated. The heart of optical transmitter is the light source whose function is to convert information in electrical signal to an equivalent form of light. Today major light sources used for optical transmitter are LED or laser and are designed for single mode or multimode fiber. The use of LEDs is for moderate distance transmission and for low & moderate frequency applications and they have limited bandwidth whereas laser diodes are used in high frequency applications like radar and can be used for long distance transmission and but with an increased cost.
