We present a monolithically integrated ring dual-wavelength semiconductor laser in which both wavelengths (¿1 and ¿2) are generated and amplified by the same semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA). An arrayed waveguide grating (AWG) is used as intra-cavity filter to combine the two wavelengths. The use of a Mach-Zehnder construction allows equalizing actively the power of ¿1 and ¿2 and tuning their frequencies. An analytical model is exploited to investigate the influence of crosstalk on the functioning of the device and to identify a calibration strategy. The device has been fabricated using active/passive integration technology on a standardized photonic integration platform.
