This paper introduces a novel integrated widely tunable laser, the tunable multimode interference (T-MMI) laser, with as tunable component an MMI coupler with a wavelength adjustable transmission spectrum. Experiments demonstrate up to 150 nm of tuning range for the T-MMI component and operation of a widely tunable T-MMI laser is demonstrated over a wavelength range of 38 nm.
