During the past years widely tunable laser structures that can be used in future telecom networks were designed and fabricated within the IST project NEWTON. This paper introduces the device principle and the measurement results of the new widely tunable MG-Y laser concept. With measured characteristics such as a 40nm tuning range, a side mode suppression of more than 40 dB and a high output power this design has the same qualities as non-tunable lasers. Its wide tunability makes it possible to add extra flexibility, functionality and performance to the network.
