Abstract
Bent waveguides are superimposed on homogeneous distributed feedback (DFB) grating fields to generate chirped DFB gratings. This efficient and high-resolution method enables the fabrication of arbitrarily axially chirped DFB gratings by appropriately bent waveguides which reveal differences between neighboring effective DFB pitches in the sub-interatomic range. The bending functions are generated by high-resolution lithography on a set of masks which can be frequently reused for a low-cost production process. The design principles are described defining specific unit cells which are reproduced as often as necessary to obtain a full coverage of the wafer. The method is demonstrated for semiconductor lasers including DFB gratings.
