A multifrequency laser (MFL) is demonstrated that runs simultaneously CW on 18 channels spaced by 103 GHz. The laser emits -14.6-dBm power per wavelength channel into single-mode fiber. Each wavelength channel can be modulated at 1.24 Gb/s. The MFL exhibits a stable and reproducible optical channel spacing owing to the reproducibility of the waveguide grating router that serves as the intracavity filter element.
