The emission frequency of a given laser might be aligned to the ITU channel plan by means of a average measure of temperature tuning. Fabrication of a DFB laser to a specific wavelength is particularly tough, yet in an array, the accuracy of the wavelength spacing will be very excessive. which means if one array aspect is fine-tuned to its layout frequency (e. g. , thermally), then all of the different array components will immediately be at, or very just about, their respective layout frequencies. Use of an array additionally makes it attainable to have redundancy with a view to increase the reliability, by way of having lasers for every wavelength. four. 6. 2. CASCADED DFB LASERS an alternative choice to a parallel array of DFB lasers is the cascading of lasers. a number of grating sections with various classes and separate electrodes should be shaped on a unmarried energetic waveguide. just one part is biased excessive above threshold at any time, with the sections in entrance of it being biased with reference to threshold and dealing as amplifiers. In an extension of this idea, units of 3 cascaded DFB lasers have been built-in with a combiner to shape a unmarried output. utilizing a 50°C temperature swap, a complete tuning variety of 30 nm (Le. , five nm tuning consistent with laser, in line with zero. 1 nm tuning in keeping with "C) used to be established [62]. This constitution is proven in Fig. four. 32. Arrays or cascaded DFB lasers are patently no longer functional for addressing loads of channels except a excessive measure of temperature tuning - output Fig. four. 32 constitution with units of 3 cascaded DFB lasers [62]. four. 'hnable Laser Diodes 153 nine mm 1 . 24 I R 18 mm b Amplifier array Fig. four. 33 AWG laser constitution [63]. is used. it will in flip decrease the tuning pace, and a few of the keep watch over simplicity virtue should be misplaced. four. 6. three. AWG established constructions The arrayed waveguide grating (also referred to as phased array) multiwavelength laser has an array of semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs) on one facet of a waveguide grating (Fig. four. 33). The SOAs are coupled to the waveguide grating through a celeb coupler. at the different facet of the waveguide grating one other coupler presents output via a unmarried waveguide, that can comprise a standard amplifier. Wavelength selectivity is equipped by means of the AWG, and the lasing frequency is chosen via turning at the applicable aspect within the SOA array. The operation of the AWG could be defined as follows. as the array components have varied lengths, mild (with a given wavelength) could be topic to various delays; as a result the section entrance of the mixed gentle on the output of the array should be tilted. the volume of tilt is wavelength based, and light-weight at various wavelengths can be excited by diverse output waveguides. In [64] a marginally extra complicated constitution is defined. This constitution has five SOAs on one part of the AWG and eight at the different. The constitution is designed in the sort of approach that forty (= five x eight) optical channels with a a hundred GHz frequency spacing can be found. 154 Gert Sarlet et aL Simultaneous operation of an AWG laser at numerous optical frequencies has been confirmed, yet cross-talk is probably going to avoid this from being a realistic proposition.
