We propose a tunable dual-wavelength heterogeneous quantum dot laser diode. The tunable dual-wavelength laser consists of a quantum dot semiconductor optical amplifier as the optical gain medium and an external cavity fabricated from silicon photonics technology as the wavelength tunable filter. We successfully demonstrated dual-wavelength lasing oscillation by tuning the difference frequency from approximately 34 to 400 GHz.
