Paper Abstract

Waveguide diode ring lasers (WDRL) in a triangular geometry exhibit a unique combination of characteristics including low-noise, medium power output, small size, good efficiency and low cost integrability and manufacturability which make them attractive candidates for analog optical links requiring large dynamic range and bandwidth. We show that 10 - 20 mw low noise (< -150 dBm) lasers appear feasible which provide low cost manufacturability and integrability. With integrated small amplifiers 85 mW single mode output has been shown. Because these WDRLs operate with unidirectional traveling waves in entirely single mode waveguide and contain a natural output coupler, they show a combination of attractive features not found in other lasers.
