ISTISOLASER

IST: ISOLASER

Full Name:Optical Isolator monolithically integrated with DFB-laser

Duration: 1/7/2002-30/9/2005 (Finished)

Partners:

  • Imec
  • Alcatel CIT
  • CNRS
  • Universite Paris-Sud
  • Alcatel Thales III-V Lab

Objective:

  • The Key objective of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel concept for monolithical integration of a DFB-laser with an optical isolator and to demonstrate that the resulting device is fully compatible with advanced telecommunication system requirements.

INTEC's Role:

  • The role of the photonics research group in the project is to design, (partly) fabricate and characterize both of the functional parts of the SOA-based isolator: the ferromagnetic magneto-optic contact layer and the underlying semiconductor optical amplifier
