Abstract

We present a novel compact distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) laser using InP-InGaAsP deep ridge waveguides with vertical groove gratings. Stable single-mode laser operation was achieved with an active cavity length down to 25 μm and a threshold current of 14 mA. The devices are promising building blocks in large-scale photonic integrated circuits because of their simple structure and low power consumption.
