A novel approach using an Opto-VLSI processor to achieve a tunable fibre laser is presented. The Opto-VLSI based fibre laser is able to tune wavelengths and maintain a high Side-Mode Suppression Ratio (SMSR) even when the output optical power is low. Experimental results show a continuously tunable fibre laser source with a tuning range as high as 30 nm and a SMSR exceeding 30 dB.
