Selective area growth (SAG) technology has been added to an established InP monolithic integration platform to fabricate arrays of multi-wavelength distributed feedback (DFB) lasers. The local epitaxy growth rate is controlled by the SiO2 mask width, and different quantum well (QW) thicknesses can be obtained in one run. The laser wavelengths span from 1447 nm to 1602 nm. The DFB lasers may include amplifying sections at the front and/or rear side. Output power up to 18 mW is achieved. This technology opens up possibilities to integrate various passive and active components such as lasers, modulators, detectors with different operating wavelengths monolithically on one wafer with less regrowth steps and reduced fabrication complexity.

A Cloud Native Approach to 5G Network Slicing

  • Francini A.
  • Miller R.
  • Sharma S.

5G networks will have to support a set of very diverse and often extreme requirements. Network slicing offers an effective way to unlock the full potential of 5G networks and meet those requirements on a shared network infrastructure. This paper presents a cloud native approach to network slicing. The cloud ...

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
