Abstract
In Phase 1 we will demonstrate the feasibility of integrating high-speed InP-based HEMTs with ASIP's proprietary asymmetric twin waveguide photonic integration technology. A common source HEMT driver transistor will be integrated with a simple, asymmetric twin waveguide (ATG) compatible laser. In Phase 2, we will extend this feasibility demonstration to demonstrate an EPIC consisting of a single wavelength, 1.55 um DFB laser integrated with an electroabsorption modulator (EML) and electronic circuitry to linearize the modulator response for use in analog transmission. On-chip electronics using the same high-speed transistor technology will also be used to demonstrate a low-speed electronic functionality of wavelength locking a 10Gb/s 1550nm, EML with an integrated wavelength sensitive optical element.
