Abstract

A photonic integrated circuit comprised of a six-channel laser array with an integrated combiner, amplifier, modulator and back-face monitor was designed for wavelength division multiplexed (WDM) transmission. This λ-selectable WDM transmitter module exhibited outstanding dynamic performance and transmission characteristics. The lasers had low thresholds and excellent channel spacing, and the array-based design provided an inherently stable channel selection in a relatively small chip size in conventional 14-pin butterfly packages with conventional single high-speed drive connections. Chirp measurements and transmission experiments showed the device to be promising for use in long haul WDM transmission systems.
