Spectral phase control of optical pulses is often required to generate short pulses, and an important application of a pulse shaper is spectral chirp/dispersion (pre-) compensation. In this paper, we present the pulse shaping/compression capability of a monolithically integrated optical pulse shaper. Chip fabrication has been carried out in a standardized generic photonic integration platform which is available in the framework of European FP7 project EuroPIC. A key capability of this platform is the active-passive integration scheme which allows direct integration of active components such as semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs) with passive elements such as arrayed waveguide gratings (AWGs) and phase modulators (PMs) on a single photonic chip.
