Paper Abstract

Single frequency lasers and frequency tunable lasers are essential components needed for the future generation of optical fiber communication systems and exchange networks. The spectral linewidths of the state-of-the-art distributed feedback lasers are reviewed. Characteristics of frequency tuning of multi-electrode DFB lasers and DBR lasers are discussed.
