Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The silicon photonic wavelength tunable laser diode is a good candidate for the integrated light source of the digital coherent optical communication system.However, optical nonlinear effects easily occur due to the strong light confinement of Si photonic wire waveguides. The impact on laser operation caused by nonlinearity was discussed.
