This paper discusses the potential for opening a new wavelength window at the 2 µm waveband for optical communications, showing current limitations of the system’s performance. It focuses on novel results for key enabling technologies, including the analysis of laser injection locking at this waveband, an improved responsivity for bulk and strained InGaAs edge-couple detectors, and also an increased gain profile for thulium-doped fiber amplifiers.
