Distributed feedback lasers emitting in a stable dynamic single mode at 1.5 μm wavelength in a temperature range of more than 50 °C have been developed using the so-called flat-surface buried heterostructure. Threshold currents as low as 14 mA in cw (8 mA in pulse) operating and output powers as high as 20 mW/facet were obtained. By detuning the Bragg wavelength to the shorter wavelength side of the gain peak, and by reducing the confinement factor, a wavelength chirp as a function of modulation current as low as 0.003 nm/mA has been obtained. This value corresponds to a total chirp of 0.1–0.2 nm under normal modulation conditions.
