Title: METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR WIDELY TUNABLE LASER
Abstract:
A widely tunable laser system includes a substrate, first and second lasers, an output and at least one optical combining device. The first laser is integrated with the substrate, includes a gain medium that includes a first material, and emits light at a wavelength that is tunable within a first wavelength range that is determined at least in part by the first material. The second laser is integrated with the substrate, includes a gain medium that includes a second material, and emits light at a wavelength that is tunable within a second wavelength range that is different from the first wavelength range that is determined at least in part by the second material. The at least one optical combining device is configured to direct light from one or both of the first laser and the second laser to the output.
