Strong Self-Pulsations in a Multi-Electrode Distributed Feedback Laser Integrated With an Electro-Absorption Modulator
Strong self-pulsation in GHz range in a dual-electrode distributed feedback (DFB) laser with an electro-absorption modulator is presented. The result shows the potential of a single on-chip device with an optical source and modulator in microwave photonics application such as microwave/millimeter wave generation, optoelectronic oscillator and optical signal processing.
