Abstract

This work investigates the optical phase locking performance of Slotted Fabry Perot (SFP) lasers and develops an integrated variable phase locked system on chip for the first time to our knowledge using these lasers. Stable phase locking is demonstrated between two SFP lasers coupled on chip via a variable gain waveguide section. The two lasers are biased differently, one just above the threshold current of the device with the other at three times this value. The coupling between the lasers can be controlled using the variable gain section which can act as a variable optical attenuator or amplifier depending on bias. Using this, the width of the stable phase locking region on chip is shown to be variable.

Figures (7)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1

Schematic of PIC. Single Facet SFP Lasers are integrated at the input and outputs of a 1×3 MMI. The input SFP is used as the master laser in this experiment and can be tuned by varying the currents IGain1 and IMirror1. The central output SFP is used as the slave laser and can be tuned by varying the currents IGain2 and IMirror2. The outer SFPs are unbiased. The power coupled from the master to the slave laser can be controlled through biasing of the MMI and SOA sections, IMMI and ISOA, these sections are shorted together and referred to as the variable gain SOA/MMI section.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Optical spectrum of the slave SFP laser undergoing optical injection but in an un-locked region. IGain and IMirror are biased to 35 mA and 30 mA respectively.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

Power spectrum of SFP laser operating with IGain biased to 35 mA and IMirror biased to 30 mA, under optical injection from an external tunable laser. The SFP laser was held fixed while light from the tunable laser was detuned by −0.1 nm to +0.1 nm across a preferential lasing mode of the SFP.

Fig. 4
Fig. 4

Image of the PIC under test. Light is coupled out from each SFP through lensed fibre positioned at the facet of the ridge waveguide.

Fig. 5
Fig. 5

Evolution of slave laser optical spectrum (a) and electrical spectrum (b), biased with IGain2 and IMirror2 equal to 35 mA and 30 mA respectively. The variable gain sections, ISOA and IMMI, were reversed biased to ensure no light was coupled on chip from the master to the slave laser. The mirror section of the master laser, IMirror1, was biased to 30 mA with the gain section of the master laser, IGain1, swept from 60 mA to 90 mA. This corresponds to a wavelength detuning of 0.08 nm to +0.16 nm with respect to the chosen lasing mode of the SFP.

Fig. 6

Evolution of slave laser optical spectrum (a) and electrical spectrum (b), biased with IGain2 and IMirror2 equal to 35 mA and 30 mA respectively. The variable gain sections, ISOA and IMMI were each biased to 60 mA, to ensure light was coupled on chip from the master to the slave laser. The mirror section of the master laser, IMirror1, was biased to 30 mA with the gain section of the master laser, IGain1, swept from 65 mA to 90 mA. This corresponds to a wavelength detuning of −0.12 nm to +0.08 nm with respect to the chosen lasing mode of the SFP.

Fig. 7
Fig. 7

Power spectra from slave SFP laser with IGain2 and IMirror2 biased to 40 mA and 35 mA, respectively. The master SFP laser was biased with IMirror1 at 35 mA. The gain section of the master laser, IGain1, is swept from 90 mA to 111 mA with the variable gain sections, IMMI and ISOA biased as above.
