Integration of active optical components typically serves five goals: enhanced performance, smaller size, lower power dissipation, higher reliability, and lower cost. We can differentiate between horizontal and vertical integration schemes. Horizontal integration combines many elements of the same functionality, like laser arrays. Vertical integration(More)
Sampled-grating distributed Bragg grating (SGDBR) laser-based widely tunable optical transmitters are investigated for application in high-performance analog links. More than 45 nm tuning range, 40 dB sidemode suppression ratio, and peak relative intensity noise below 153 dB/Hz is measured. SGDBR lasers integrated with semiconductor optical amplifiers and(More)
A widely tuneable electroabsorption-modulated sampled-grating distributed Bragg reflector laser, integrated with a semiconductor optical amplifier is characterized for analog applications. The wavelength can be tuned anywhere from 1522 to 1573 nm. The suboctave spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR) is between 125–127 dBHz4 5 measured at eight sampled(More)
λ2 OC-192 We are manufacturing widely tunable laser diodes based on an integrated single chip design. The sampled-grating distributed Bragg reflector (SG-DBR) laser is monolithically integrated with a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA). The continuous wave (cw) output power of the fully packaged device is more than 20mW over the entire C-band with low(More)
