Abstract

A fast dual-mode-locked akinetic optical swept source in the 1550-nm wavelength band is presented that is tested up to a sweep rate of 797 KHz. It comprises a voltage-controlled oscillator-driven wideband semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) along with a dispersion compensation fiber, in a ring laser configuration. A Faraday rotating mirror is employed in the cavity as a reflective element in order to achieve better polarization control. By driving the SOA at a high-MHz-frequency value multiple of the resonant frequency
