Paper Abstract

Conditions of fabrication of first-order distributed-feedback surface gratings designed for single-mode Al 0.45 Ga 0.55 As / GaAs quantum cascades lasers with the emission wavelength of about 10    μ m are presented. The 1 - μ m -deep rectangular-shaped gratings with the period of about 1.55    μ m and duty cycle in the range of 65% to 71% made by the standard photolithography are demonstrated. The wavenumber difference of about 7    cm 1 at 77 K is observed for the radiation emitted by lasers fabricated from the same epitaxial structure with ridge widths in the range of 15 to 25    μ m . Moreover, the emission wavelength of the lasers could be tuned with temperature at a rate of 1    nm / K in the temperature range of 77 to 120 K. The full width at half maximum of the emitted spectra is 0.4    cm 1 .
