Paper Abstract

Dual-mode multi-section quantum-well distributed feedback lasers with surface gratings have been fabricated, without regrowth, at 1310 and 1550 nm using UV nano-imprint lithography. Several laser and grating sections have been employed to control and stabilize the dual-mode emission and to reduce mode competition. Frequency differences between 15 GHz and 1 THz were achieved for different longitudinal structures. Frequency difference variations of several GHz have been measured under bias modulation with rates up to a few GHz. Higher frequency difference modulation rates are expected from improved measurement setups and from employing quantum dot active regions for further reduction of mode competition.
