Paper Abstract

The characteristics of commercially available 1.5-micron distributed feedback (DFB) laser diodes obtained from seven manufacturers were investigated, and the results are correlated with the lasers' structural parameters. It was found that buried heterostructures with first-order gratings showed consistently good results (as opposed to buried heterostructures with second-order gratings). A ridge waveguide laser was near the bottom of most performance charts.
