Paper Abstract

Widely tunable laser has been recognized as one of the key enabling technologies for more efficient and intelligent optical networks. We present recent advanced development of a monolithic full band tunable laser device based on sampled grating distributed Bragg reflector (SG-DBR) technology at Agility Communications. We will discuss key performance parameters, as well as long term reliability of a widely tunable laser with high power (> 20mW), wide tuning range (the whole C-band, or L-band), monolithically integrated electro-absorption (EA) modulator and semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA). Optical network applications will also be discussed.
