Abstract

We present a wavelength tunable, coupled-cavity laser in a standard indium phosphide multiproject wafer shuttle which did not support distributed feedback gratings. The single-mode operation was enabled by reflections from slots in the laser cavity. The wavelength of the laser emission was tunable over 20 nm near a wavelength of 1560 nm via the currents applied to each section of the laser. A maximum side-mode suppression ratio of 46 dB was observed. The delayed self-heterodyne spectrum of the laser showed a Voigt line shape, corresponding to optical linewidths of 3.7 MHz for the Lorentzian and 88 MHz for the Gaussian contributions.
