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.
