20 February 2017 Supercontinuum comb sources for broadband communications based on AlGaAs-on-insulator

We experimentally demonstrated 10 GHz frequency comb spectral broadening in an AlGaAsOI nano-waveguide with the peak power of only several watts. The spectral broadened 10 GHz frequency comb has high optical signal to noise ratio (OSNR) at the output of the nano-waveguide. As far as we know, it is the first photonic chip based frequency comb, relying on spectral broadening of a 10 GHz mode-locked laser comb in an AlGaAsOI nano-waveguide, with a sufficient comb output power to support several hundred Tbit/s optical data.
