Abstract: In an optical transceiver, the power consumption related to the operation of the laser device takes a significant parcel of the total consumed power. Thus, in optical networks where a large number of transceiver devices are interconnected, e.g. large distributed sensor networks, it is of great importance to reduce this power consumption. In this work an analysis and simulation results are presented regarding the operation of a bias-free vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) device, which is based on a previously developed model. The impact on bit-error rate (BER) of the increased turn-on jitter due to the bit-pattern and spontaneous emission is considered. A method for mitigating the eye-diagram distortion penalty based on the received signal equalization is also illustrated.
