Technical Abstract (Limit 2000 characters, approximately 200 words):

Generating continuous tuning waveforms for a DBR laser requires rapid and precise coordination of four separate injection currents.  To achieve this in a low cSWaP fashion, waveform generation ICs have been applied in conjunction with sophisticated calibration routines and on-chip thermal compensation.

          
          
     
Potential NASA Applications (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words):

The technology developed in this program is directly applicable to atmospheric gas sensing, fiber bragg grating interrogation, and LiDar applications within NASA and the commercial space.

          
          
     
Potential Non-NASA Applications (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words):

The technology developed in this program is directly applicable to atmospheric gas sensing, fiber bragg grating interrogation, and LiDar applications within NASA and the commercial space.
