We have designed and fabricated a monolithically integrated continuously tunable laser source for frequency domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) in the 1.6 to 1.8μm wavelength region. The InP-based laser consists of two 8mm long quantum dot (QD) semiconductor optical amplifiers and two electro-optically (EO) tunable filters in a 43.5 mm long ring laser cavity. An 8mm long output amplifier is used to boost the output signal.
