Physical limitation of tuning time and system considerations in implementing fast tuning of GCSR lasers Academic Article uri icon


  • A system engineering approach for calculating the tuning time of an ultra-fast tunable laser transmitter based on the grating-assisted codirectional coupler with sampled reflector (GCSR) laser is presented. The limitations on tuning time are investigated theoretically and experimentally.
