Arcsine Phase & Linear Intensity Modulators w/ Comb Filter 
Direct Phase Detection (w/o external local oscillator) w/ Comb Filter 
Arbitrary Waveform Measurements
Arbitrary Waveform Generation
Pattern Recognition using Matched Filtering Techniques
Summary and Conclusions
MotivationWhy Diode Based Fiber Lasers?
Diode lasers are small (100’s microns), electrically efficient
(>70%), wavelength agile (300 nm to >10 microns viabandgap engineering).
Robust, no moving / mechanical parts
Broad bandwidth
potential for large tuning bandwidth.
Operates over very broad temperature ranges.
Cost effective, direct electrically (battery) pumped.
Can engineer the cavity Q to be >> than conventional cavities
Potential for photonic integrated circuits, e.g., electronics,lasers, modulators & detectors
full functioningoptoelectronic systems on a chip
computing & signal processing at the speed of light!
