Distributed Feedback (DFB) Laser: Introduction

  • A distributed feedback (DFB) laser unifies the laser longitudinal mode by using the Bragg reflection of a diffraction grating created along an active waveguide. It has a small line width and strong wavelength stability. The appropriate wavelength can be achieved by adjusting the pitch of the diffraction grating.
  • The distributed feedback (DFB) laser is typically used for optical communications over high capacity long distance and also for other range of applications such as fiber sensing, 3D sensing, gas sensing, and disease diagnosis such as respiratory and vascular monitoring
  • The DFB laser eliminates the external grating that is required for conventional pump laser. Furthermore, it offers some benefits which include fiber length reduction, a decrease in the device's footprint, and lower power requirements.
  • Rise in adoption of DFB laser for precise fiber optic communication and spectroscopy applications, owing to its provision of smooth, tunable wavelength control and narrow spectral width, is driving the market

Rise in Use forFiber Optic Communications

  • Based on application, the fiber optic communications segment is projected to expand significantly during the forecast period due to a rise in use of DFB laser for fiber-optic communication such as DWDM communication system, and LAN/WAN communication system
  • Fiber optic communication is extensively employed for Ethernet backbone infrastructure, high-speed internet services, and general data networking. It offers secure communication, faster speed as compared to conventional copper cabling, and suitable for long-distance, point-to-point hardline communications.
  • Fiber optics integrated with DFB lasers enable massive and unrivalled transmission capacity with little latency, and are presently, the transmission medium of choice in telecommunication networks for long-distance and high-data-rate transmission
  • Significant and consistent expansion of consumer and commercial demand for increased telecommunication capacity and internet services coupled with the capability of fiber optic technology to provide the requisite information capacity, is a major factor boosting the widespread usage of DFB laser for fiber optics communication

North America to Lead Global Distributed Feedback (DFB) Laser Market

  • In terms of region, the global distributed feedback (DFB) laser market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America
  • North America is expected to hold a prominent share of the global distributed feedback (DFB) laser market by the end of the forecast period due to a rise in the demand from fiber optic communications applications 
  • Around 40% of the population in the U.S. has access to fiber optic internet. The U.S. is expected to require roughly US$ 150 billion in fiber optic infrastructure investment over the next five to seven years to address the increased demand for broadband connectivity, rural coverage, and wireless densification. This, in turn, is estimated to boost the distributed feedback (DFB) laser market in North America.
  • Presence of established players of distributed feedback (DFB) laser in the region, such as EMCORE Corporation, Applied Optoelectronics, Inc., Lumentum Operations LLC, INPHENIX INC., and G&H, further fuels the market in the region owing to their large customer base
  • The distributed feedback (DFB) laser market in Asia Pacific and Europe is expected to expand at a significant rate during the forecast period due to a rise in the demand for distributed feedback (DFB) laser from countries in Western Europe. The distributed feedback (DFB) laser market in the Middle East & Africa and South America is projected to expand at a healthy rate during the forecast period.
