Abstract

This paper reviews performance of hybrid and monolithically integrated WDM transmitter arrays based on directly modulated 2.5Gbps lasers, with a focus on the wavelength accuracy and stability under normal operating conditions. We also consider power stability, chromatic dispersion penalties, and the channel cross-talk. Large numbers of four-wavelength devices were obtained and evaluated under a program designed to provide university-based system researchers with advanced WDM components We show that multi-wavelength laser arrays capable of high-performance out-of-the-box operation can be now produced for research-type WDM systems.
