Title: Design and Analysis of Enhanced Modulation Response in Integrated Coupled Cavities DBR Lasers Using Photon-Photon Resonance

In the last decades, various solutions have been proposed to increase the modulation bandwidth and consequently the transmission bit rate of integrated semiconductor lasers. In this manuscript we discuss a design procedure for a recently proposed laser structure realized with the integration of two DBR lasers. Design guidelines will be proposed and dynamic small and large signal simulations, calculated using a Finite Difference Traveling Wave numerical simulator, will be performed to confirm the design results and the effectiveness of the analyzed integrated configuration to achieve a direct modulation bandwidth up to 80 GHz
