A Fabry-Perot laser is a type of laser diode abbreviated as FP laser. This is a simple and common type of laser diode which is generally working on 1310nm/1550nm wavelengths. This laser was named after French scientists Charles Fabri and Alfred Parrot.
FP laser is mostly used for short-distance transmission because of its low data rate. This laser diode works on a low threshold and operating current and also can work in many different operational temperature ranges.
Fabry-Perot laser is used in many applications such as optical transmission, data communication and the local optical network.
