Picture of sea vessel plough through rough maritime conditions

Innovations in marine technology, pioneered through Open Access research...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research here explores the potential of marine renewables, such as offshore wind, current and wave energy devices to promote the delivery of diverse energy sources. Expertise in offshore hydrodynamics in offshore structures also informs innovations within the oil and gas industries. But as a world-leading centre of marine technology, the Department is recognised as the leading authority in all areas related to maritime safety, such as resilience engineering, collision avoidance and risk-based ship design. Techniques to support sustainability vessel life cycle management is a key research focus.

Multi-wavelength laser sources are central to a large number of applications, such as mm and THz-wave generation via Photomixing or Four Wave Mixing, and as light sources for DWDM systems. Most of these applications require the monolithic integration of several DFB lasers on the same chip with very precise and accurate control over the closely-spaced emission wavelengths. In this paper we present the design, fabrication and characterization of a multi-DFB laser array with high resolution wavelength spacing.
