A novel integrated tunable laser is presented which combines a simple tuning method with ns switching speed. The Photonic Integrated Circuit consists of a Fabry-Perot laser with deeply-etched DBR mirrors. The Fabry-Perot modes can be selected independently using an Arrayed Waveguide Grating and then re-injected into the laser cavity, forcing single mode operation at the wavelength of that mode. 4ns switching time as well as 15 dB SMSR is demonstrated on the prototype device.
