Paper Abstract

System demonstrations employing soliton transmission and/or optical time division multiplexing have emphasized the need for stable and reliable pulse sources with repetition rates in the 1 GHz to 10 GHz range. For these applications, we have fabricated several photonic integrated laser devices that through gain-switching or mode-locking generate optical pulses with durations between 20 ps and 50 ps. In this talk, we will discuss gain-switched DBR laser integrated with high-power optical amplifiers or electro-absorption modulators and laser devices with long low-loss passive waveguides for active mode-locking.
