A monolithically integrated photonic circuit with an InGaAs/InGaAsP multiple-quantum-well (MQW) traveling-wave optical amplifier, a Bragg reflection grating-folded noise filter, and an MQW photodetector has been demonstrated. This photonic circuit offers potential as a preamplfiied lightwave receiver.
