POLIS (POLarization based Integration Scheme) is a new idea for combining passive and active components on a chip. It requires only one type of material, and obtains different functions (passive or active) by using polarization depended absorption in strained quantum wells. The simulation of a first integrated POLIS-circuiton InP is presented: a multi-wavelength laser. This circuit contains gain blocks, polarization converters and a phased array demultiplexer. The simulations demonstrate a multi-wavelength laser with 2 compressively strained quantum wells. The simulated threshold current is 90 mA. Predicted output power is above 40 mW, for each of four wavelength channels, at 200 mA current.
