The electroabsorption modulated DFB laser (EML) is a key component of today’s dense WDM systems because of its low frequency chirp, high reliability, low cost, and compactness [1]. As the DWDM channel count continues to mount, it becomes essential to add wavelength selectable functionality to the EML to reduce transmitter inventory costs, and to enable future wavelength-agile networking concepts.
