Semiconductor laser arrays are being realized for wavelength-division-multiplexed (WDM) lightwave communication systems. Such arrays can increase the amount of transmitted information through a fiber link, or can be used for optical switching applications. By combining the signals on chip, the alignment of fibers to individual lasers is eliminated.
