A novel laser directly grown on silicon photonics, operated at 25Gb/s in the telecom O-band
demonstrating the significant cost-saving potential of the technologies pursued in DIMENSION.
Both 1300-nanometer light and 1550-nanometer light, corresponding to C-band and O-band
wavelengths widely used in fibre optic networks, were beamed at the device from above.
Designed as a pump source for O-band
Raman amplification, the LD-12xx-series features a single mode output of 300 mW at 1100 mA, centered at 1240 nm or 1260 nm.
