    Abstract: An injection modulator for modulation of optical radiation, having an optical waveguide and a diode structure, having at least two p-doped semiconductor portions, at least two n-doped semiconductor portions and at least one lightly or undoped intermediate portion between the p-doped and n-doped portions. The p-doped portions when viewed in the longitudinal direction of the waveguide are offset with respect to the n-doped portions and the diode structure is arranged in a resonance-free portion of the waveguide. The p-doped portions lie on one side of the waveguide, the n-doped portions lie on the other side of the waveguide and the intermediate portion lies in the center, each portion extends transversely with respect to the waveguide longitudinal direction in the direction of the waveguide center of the waveguide and no p-doped portion when viewed in the longitudinal direction of the waveguide overlaps any n-doped portion.

  • Patent number: 9780525
    Abstract: An optoelectronic oscillator for generating an optical and/or electric pulse comb, comprising a monolithically integrated passively mode-coupled semiconductor laser and an optical feedback loop which guides a part of the optical radiation of the semiconductor laser and feeds said part back into the semiconductor laser as feedback pulses. Without the influence of the feedback pulses, the semiconductor laser would emit comb-like optical pulses, hereafter referred to as primary pulses, and in the event of an influence, emits comb-like output pulses which have been influenced by the feedback pulses, said output pulses having a lower temporal jitter or less phase noise than the primary pulses. The feedback loop is damped between 27.5 and 37.5 dB, and the time lag of the feedback loop is selected such that each feedback pulse is incident within the temporal half-value width of each subsequent primary pulse.
