Pure frequency modulation or intensity modulation with suppressed frequency chirp using active Bragg reflector integrated laser
1989 (English)In: Electronics Letters, ISSN 0013-5194, E-ISSN 1350-911X, Vol. 25, 304-305 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The modulation properties of a laser structure which consists of an active Bragg reflector (300 mu m) integrated with an uncorrugated gain region (600 mu m) have been measured. The laser exhibited a flat FM response and very low spurious intensity modulation when modulating the current in the Bragg reflector. Furthermore, broadband intensity modulation with suppressed frequency chirp could also be achieved. An inhomogeneous linewidth enhancement factor alpha caused by the uneven carrier density distribution between the two sections gives a qualitative explanation to our results.
