Abstract

We developed compact (1.136 mm2) eight-channel wavelength-selectable microarray distributed feedback laser diodes (DFB-LD's) with a monolithically integrated 8×1 multimode-interference (MMI) optical combiner, a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA), and an electro-absorption (EA) modulator. By using ±10 °C thermal tuning, an addressable wavelength range of 15.3 nm with uniform device characteristics and 2.5-Gb/s modulation performance were successfully demonstrated.
