Paper Abstract

The tight tolerances imposed on photonic components for standardized integration into DWDM systems requires that some form of temperature stabilization must be incorporated. Frequently this involves the use of traditional temperature sensors integrated into a classic control-feedback scheme involving thermo-electric coolers. While easy to implement, such a scheme is hardly novel and may result in an inefficient use of electrical power. A technique using flexible thermal tape configured into packages applicable for thermal stabilization of DWDM compliant laser diode sources and tunable filters is described.
