ABSTRACT
In this letter, a passive microring-resonator-coupled semiconductor laser structure is proposed. The weakly coupled high-Q microring resonator provides a strong mode-selection filter and could considerably extend the effective cavity length of a conventional Fabry–Perot laser. The side-mode suppression ratio, the linewidth and the frequency chirp of this laser are dramatically improved comparing to distributed feedback and distributed Bragg reflector lasers. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.
