Paper Abstract

In this letter, we report a novel multiwavelength picosecond pulse transmitter based on a modelocked semiconductor laser. By actively modelocking a single-grating-loaded external cavity semiconductor laser system, 20 wavelength channels are simultaneously generated with each wavelength transmitting 12 ps pulses at a 600 MHz rate. A conventional pulse interleaving configuration multiplexes the output optical pulse train by eight fold to give a final 5Gbit/sec pulse rate. The resulting geometry provides a very compact configuration to reach an aggregate data throughput of 100Gbit/sec.
