Manufacturing Matters with Tunable Lasers

Paula M. Powell

One problem faced by manufacturers of full-band-tunable laser modules is the need for close cost parity with existing fixed or partially tunable devices. A key step in achieving this goal involves standardizing as much of the fabrication and assembly process as possible. Bookham Technology plc in Abingdon, UK, recently used such an approach when it introduced a high-power broadband tunable laser module based on a monolithically integrated digital-supermode distributed Bragg reflector laser and semiconductor optical amplifier. The surface-ridge device is fabricated using conventional InP...Read full article
