BIOGRAPHY
Guan-Lin Su received his B.S. in electronics engineering from National Chiao Tung University, Hsinchu, Taiwan in 2011, and M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana in 2014 and 2016, respectively. He is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley.

His research area of interest covers modeling of semiconductor lasers (VCSELs, DFB lasers, and tunable lasers), III-N and III-V quantum structures (quantum wells, dots, and superlattices), and passive components for optical communications and integrated photonics.

Broadly-Tunable Laser with Self-Imaging Three-Branch Multi-Mode Interferometer [BPN856]
Tunable lasers with high SMSRs are cost-effective solutions to replace multiple DFB lasers as the light source for WDM systems. Interferometer- based lasers, such as C3 and Y- lasers, have advantages over grating- and ring-resonator-based lasers in terms of cost and fabrication complexities; however, a large optical path difference between the two arms is required for high SMSRs but it defeats the Vernier effect and reduces the wavelength tuning range. In our proposed three-branch MMI laser, two tuning arms with similar lengths ensure a wide tuning range, and an additional long arm provides extra optical interference and increases the SMSR. In this project, our designed laser can be optimized to be single-mode across the entire C-band, and the use of a self-imaging MMI avoids additional losses that would potentially increase the threshold. Based on our simulation, the laser wavelength of the device can be electrically tuned over 30 nm with a 100-GHz ITU channel spacing. It is expected that, upon the completion of the project, the developed tunable laser can serve as a low-cost solution for datacom and telecom applications.
