Abstract

We propose the lateral integration scheme of an MEMS tunable VCSEL and a slow light amplifier for increasing single-mode power. The modeling result predicts the maximum output power over several tens mW for a compact slow light amplifier monolithically integrated with an MEMS VCSEL. In addition, the efficient excitation of slow light in the integrated slow light amplifier is shown. A high coupling efficiency and a radiation angle from the amplifier are almost constant during wide wavelength tuning.
