Abstract

A novel fiber Bragg grating stabilized laser array is proposed here. The multi-wavelength source is aimed at low cost dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) applications where the superior properties, i.e., low chirp, low temperature dependence, of the fiber Grating is utilized. The resultant product is a coolerless multi-wavelength laser source that can be modulated with direct current. The efforts include laser chip wave guide design, fiber grating development, hybrid package design and assembling process development.
