We fabricated 40 Gb/s electroabsorption modulator-integrated DFB lasers (EMLs). Adopting traveling-wave (TW) electrode and tilted facet improved high-frequency characteristics of EMLs. The 3 dB bandwidth of E/O response for TW-EML was as large as 34 GHz, as compared with 27 GHz for lumped EML. Tilted facet formed by dry etching processes successfully… CONTINUE READING
