The integrated operation of a 16*1 wavelength-division-multiplexed (WDM) source with distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) lasers and electroabsorption modulators has been demonstrated. By using repeated holographic exposures and wet chemical etching, 16 different wavelengths from 1.544 to 1.553 mu m with an average channel spacing of 6 AA are obtained. A high-performance combiner is used to obtain a very uniform coupling into the single-output waveguide, and with the integration of an optical amplifier an average optical power of -8 dBm per channel is coupled into a single-mode fiber.<>
