We show simulation results of a compact, integrated and tunable multi-wavelength diode laser emitting around 785 nm. The presented design was optimized using passive waveguide simulations and then further analyzed by performing active laser simulations. The latter enables deducing critical design parameters not accessible via an all-passive simulation.
