Widely tunable semiconductor lasers will play a critical part in future technologies. Tunable lasers are rapidly replacing fixed wavelength lasers in dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) optical communications. The performance specifications of tunable lasers are the same as fixed wavelength specifications plus additional specifications that include: wavelength tuning range; wavelength switching speed; and minimum wavelength spacing. Tunable laser diodes (TLD) have been used in optical networks for some time now starting with devices with small wavelength coverage and moving towards full band coverage.
