Abstract

In this demonstration, we propose and experimentally investigate a stable wavelength-tuning laser configuration by using self-seeded Fabry-Perot laser diode (FP-LD) and external-injected reflective semi-conductor optical amplifier (RSOA). Here, this proposed laser can be tuned in the wavelength range of 1534.05 to 1553.00 nm with a 1.1 nm tuning-step. And the output powers and side-mode suppression ratios (SMSRs) are measured at -5.3 to 4.6 dBm and 31.2 to 50.1 dB/0.05 nm, respectively. And, the proposed laser also can be directly modulated at 2.5 Gb/s on-off keying (OOK) modulation format and propagates 75 km single-mode fiber (SMF) with no optical amplifier and dispersion compensation.
