Paper Abstract

The microwave optoelectronic oscillator (OEO) has been demonstrated on a breadboard. The future trend is to integrate the whole OEO on a chip, which requires the development of high power and high efficiency integrated photonic components. In this paper, we will present the design and fabrication of an integrated semiconductor laser/modulator using the identical active layer approach on InGaAsP/InP material. The best devices have threshold currents of 50-mA at room temperature for CW operation. The device length is approximately 3-mm, resulting in a mode spacing of 14 GHz. For only 5-dBm microwave power applied to the modulator section, modulation response with 30 dB resonate enhancement has been observed. This work shows the promise for an on-chip integrated OEO.
