Multi-wavelength lasers (MWLs) play an important role in wavelength division multiplexing networks, and also in photonic radar beam steering applications. In this paper we present the design ofmulti-wavelength transmitters, with multi-wavelength lasers and modulators monolithically integrated on an InP chip. We use novel on-chip MMI reflectors to form an array of Fabry-Pe rot lasers, which is frequency-locked by feedback from an AWGfllter~ The multi-wavelength laser is integrated with a Mach-Zehnder modulator array on a single chip, fabricated in a standard JnP active-passive technology.
