Abstract

A real-time switchable and reconfigurable multiwavelength laser has been experimentally carried out. The laser cavity is based on a random distributed mirror and a novel real-time reconfigurable filter mirror structure. The proposed laser has been demonstrated to generate any combination of wavelengths at the 50 and 100 GHz International Telecommunications Union (ITU) grids specifications. By simultaneously using Er-doped fiber and Raman amplification, a 15 nm wide lasing window at the C band can be utilized to create up to 18 different lasing wavelengths into the ITU grid that can be switched automatically and in real time when desired.
