Abstract

A novel tunable semiconductor waveguide reflection filter is proposed and analyzed. The filter is based on spatially selective gain pumping of a chirped-corrugation waveguide. This active chirped-corrugation waveguide filter (ACF) is considered for monolithic broadband tuning of semiconductor lasers.
