Our gain chip provides high optical gain in the C-band, L-band and O-band wavelength ranges. The gain chip acts as the laser gain source in the external cavity laser system and is mounted on the submount in chip form. The gain chip has a high reflectivity (HR) or low reflectivity (LR) coating on one end face and an anti-reflection (AR) coating on the other sloped end face.
The gain chips are designed and produced in our fabs. We are able to customize flip-chip gain chips for silicon photonics platform or other optical platforms, and provide further output modes and output coating optimizations for maximum coupling efficiency. These custom designs and optimizations improve the integration of photonic systems and help customers achieve high-power, narrow linewidth, and low-cost external cavity lasers.
For external cavity tunable laser components used in coherent ITLA applications, DenseLight has introduced high gain and broadband gain chips, using LR-AR coating or HR-AR coating, P-side down design, providing low ASE ripple.
