Abstract : An RF laser array driver apparatus with a DC bias input and and RF input to modulate a diode array and provide a modulated optical output. The driver circuit comprises a series impedance which is in parallel with the diode array to provide a 50 ohm impedance to the RF input signal that is substantially constant with frequency. (Author)
