We describe a quantum-well intermixing process for the monolithic integration of various devices, each with a unique band edge. The process involves a single ion implant followed by multiple etch and anneal cycles. We have applied this method to design and fabricate widely tunable sampled-grating distributed Bragg reflector lasers with integrated electroabsorption modulators. The devices employ three unique band edges, and demonstrate exceptional tuning, gain, and absorption characteristics.
