Paper Abstract

An ultra-broadband hybrid integrated pulse shaping circuit for the direct and efficient modulation of semiconductor injection lasers has been developed. The circuitry is optimized for the use in an electrooptic sampling setup that utilizes a 1.3 micrometers wavelength Fabry-Perot laser diode. The realization of arbitrary repetition rates allows the operation of the measurement setup similar to a conventional sampling oscilloscope with a trigger input. The generation of the electrical pulses and the obtained optical pulses as well as the simulation of the large signal modulation is discussed.
