Paper Abstract

The objective of this work is to analyse the dependence of the frequency response of Laterally Coupled Diode Lasers (LCDL) focusing on the separation between the laser ridges. A detailed study of the integrated optical spectra and frequency response is presented for LCDLs with 300 μm cavity length and separation between the ridges of 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 μm. This study is of major importance as it defines the range of frequency locking for each ridge spacing and also its dependence on the bias conditions applied.
