Paper Abstract

We theoretically demonstrate that a properly placed distributed-feedback grating can provide spatial-mode discrimination in phase-locked antiguided arrays. These novel devices are particularly attractive because both spatial-mode and frequency selection are accomplished in an index-guided structure using a single mechanism that is virtually independent of thermal instabilities and drive level. The analysis includes the effects of facet coatings and accounts for the random nature of the cleave locations relative to the grating phase.
