Abstract

We present two photonic integrated circuits for application as a front-end data read-out unit. The PICs have been designed and fabricated in a generic, InP-based technology. The circuits make use of WDM scheme to read-out the digital data in parallel with a sam- pling frequency of 1 GHz in each channel. The PICs are built with AWGs as wavelength (de-)multiplexers, electro-optical amplitude modulators (using phase shifter sections in interferometer configuration) and SOAs for loss compensation. In this work we present the design and the measurement results of the fabricated devices. Two solutions of the circuits, in reflecting and transmitting configuration, are discussed.
