Abstract

We demonstrate an ultrahigh-speed wavelength-swept semiconductor laser using a polygon-based wavelength scanning filter. With a polygon rotational speed of 900? revolutionspersecond, a continuous wavelength tuning rate of 9200?nm?ms and a tuning repetition rate of 115?kHz were achieved. The wavelength tuning range of the laser was 80?nm centered at 1325?nm, and the average polarized output power was 23?mW.
