Abstract

In this paper we present recent results obtained in the area of monolithically integrated modelocked semiconductor laser systems using generic InP based integration platform technology operating around 1550nm. Standardized components defined in this technology platform can be used to design and realize short pulse lasers and optical pulse shapers. This makes that these devices can be realized on wafers that can contain many other devices. In the area of short pulse lasers we report design studies based on measured optical amplifier performance data. This work has the ultimate goal to establish a library of widely applicable short pulse laser designs. Such lasers can include components for e.g. wavelength control. An important boundary condition on the laser design is that the laser can be located anywhere on the InP chip. In the area of pulse shaping we report on a 20 channel monolithic pulse shaper capable of phase and amplitude control in each channel. Special attention is given to the calibration of the phase modulator and amplifier settings. Pulse compression and manipulation of pulse generated from modelocked semiconductor lasers is demonstrated using a 40 GHz quantum dash modelocked laser.
