Semiconductor Laser with Optical Feedback - Integrated Device - 12GHz Detection BW

Output power time series from a 4-section photonic integrated circuit (PIC) laser. The device consists of a 300 um long DFB laser section, a 200 um feedback control section, a 150 um phase control section and a 1 cm long passive waveguide section which has a high reflective coating on the end facet to provide optical feedback. Time series recorded for different combinations of optical feedback level, optical feedback phase and laser injection current. Detection bandwidth is 12 GHz and sampling rate 40 GSa/s.
