DFB Lasers With Deeply Etched Vertical Grating Based on InAs–InP Quantum-Dash Structures
IEEE Photonics Technology Letters 19 (2007) 264.
Distributed feedback lasers with first-order vertical grating based on AlInGaAs-InAs-InP quantum-dash lasers were fabricated by electron beam lithography and Cl2-Ar reactive ion etching with an electron cyclotron resonance source. Low threshold currents and single-mode operation with sidemode suppression ratios of 48 dB and a direct modulation bandwidth of 5.5 GHz were demonstrated.
