Abstract

A tunable integrated semiconductor optical pulse shaper is presented. The device consists of a pair of 200 GHz arrayed waveguide gratings with an array of electrooptical phase modulators in between. It has been fabricated in InP/InGaAsP material for operation at wavelengths around 1.55 µm, and has an optical bandwidth of 36 nm. Multimode inputs to the waveguide gratings are used to flatten their optical passbands, leading to a fourfold decrease in pulse ringing. The device is able to (pre-) compensate dispersion values of 0.2 ps/nm for 300 fs pulses, which is a suitable value for applications in e.g. biomedical multi-photon imaging.
