Abstract

An eight-channel laser array with 100 GHz channel spacing based on surface-slotted structures is demonstrated. Wavelength selection is realized by using a group of micrometer-order slots fabricated by standard lithography technology. An output power of over 14 mW and a side-mode suppression ratio of better than 35 dB for each laser within the array are achieved. A laser array without tuning for 100 GHz channel spacing by standard lithography was realized for the first time, to the best of our knowledge. The laser array can be used to enhance the capacity of communication links and provides a promising light source for photonic-integrated circuits.
