Abstract
E-TEK PROPOSES FOUR SOUND METHODS TO CONSTRUCT THE TUNABLE OPTICAL SOURCES HAVING A WIDE TUNING RANGE, STABLE SINGLE-MODE, AND LOW NOISE OPERATION. THE FOUR METHODS ARE: (1) SUPERLUMINESCENT DIODE WITH TUNABLE/FIXED NARROW BAND WAVEGUIDE FILTER; (2) TUNABLE LASER DIODE SOURCE USING AN EXTERNAL LINBO3 ELECTRO-OPTIC MODULATOR; (3) LASER DIODE WITH A FEEDBACK LOOP; AND (4) TUNABLE INTERFEROMETRIC LASER DIODE. DURING PHASE I R&D, E-TEK WILL PERFORM DETAILED THEORETICAL ANALYSES AND COMPUTATIONS, INCLUDING FABRICATION FEASIBILITY, WAVELENGTH TUNABILITY, TUNING RANGE, TUNING SENSITIVITY, SPECTRAL PURITY, DEVICE STABILITY, POWER OUTPUT, TEMPERATURE EFFECTS, ETC.
