Paper Abstract

The Detuning Loading Effect, i.e., the effects of the modulation performance on the position of the lasing mode relative to the Bragg reflection peak, is investigated in a Modulated Grating Y-branch laser. By proper adjustment of the lasing mode position, simultaneous chirp reduction and modulation bandwidth enhancement can be obtained. The lasing mode position is also crucial for side mode suppression ratio and output power.
