Abstract

In this paper, a stable and wavelength-switchable silicon-photonic erbium-doped fiber (EDF) triple-ring laser is proposed and demonstrated. In the experiment, the integration of a silicon-on-insulator (SOI)-based grating coupler and silicon-micro-ring-resonator (SMRR) are coupled and connected to the proposed EDF triple-ring laser for generating wavelength. Here, the output wavelength can be adjusted in a wavelength range of 1529.8 -1561.8 nm with a 2.0 nm tuning step according to the free spectrum range (FSR) of the SMRR. Moreover, the stability performance of the output power and wavelength are also discussed and analyzed.
