Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present three-dimensional (3D) simulation results for an integrated wavelength converter which monolithically combines a pre-amplifying receiver with a post-amplified sampled-grating distributed Bragg reflector tunable laser diode. The self-consistent physical model used in the simulation takes into account gain and absorption in the quantum wells, carrier drift and diffusion, and optical wave-guiding. In order to validate and calibrate the model, we compare the results to available experimental data. Microscopic physical processes inside the converter components are revealed and analyzed, such as receiver saturation effects.
