Abstract

An eight-wavelength distributed feedback semiconductor laser array with λ/4 equivalent phase shift based on reconstruction-equivalent-chirp technique was demonstrated. It shows very good linearity in lasing wavelengths with its deviation from 0.22 to 0.20 nm. The threshold currents are between 19 and 24 mA. The side-mode suppression ratios are all larger than 40 dB under the bias currents of 70 mA. The slope efficiencies at room temperature are all about 0.4W/A. The grating was fabricated only by common holographic exposure and an additional micrometer-level conventional photolithography, which results in a low cost.
