2-D Monolithic Multiple-Wavelength Diode Laser Array
Optical sources capable of THz data rates are essential for
applications ranging from optical fiber communications, to
fully interconnected large computers, to real-time optical
signal and image processing. The more conventional approach
to achieve high data rate is to use a single high speed
or mode-locked diode laser. However, their bandwidths are
limited to a few tens to a hundred GHz. Moreover, the laser
as well as its driver and packaging becomes very expensive
as its speed increases.
