Paper Abstract

HDBR (Hybrid Distributed Bragg Reflector) laser (also called FGL - Fiber Grating Laser), has been recently demonstrated as low-chirp and potentially low cost lasers emitting at predetermined (ITU-T grid) wavelengths, as well as high quality picosecond pulses laser source. WDM transmission of three densely spaced directly modulated HDBR lasers at 2.6 Gbit/s over 117 km of standard fiber and the direct modulation at 10 Gbit/s have been demonstrated. By using appropriate cavity and grating design, we have realized, for DWDM applications, an HDBR laser that can be directly modulated at 10Gbit/s, while for OTDM systems, we have recently demonstrated a Mode-Locked HDBR laser source, for picosecond optical pulse generation at 10 GHz repetition rate.
