High power buried heterostructure 1.55micrometers tunable DBR lasers have been designed, fabricated and characterized. The laser consists of a gain section, a distributed Bragg reflector, a semiconductor optical amplifier and front photodetector for automated power control. The heterostructures were grown by MOCVD with the help of selective area growth techniques and dual waveguide heterostructure. Several advantages stem from this integration scheme which include simplicity of design and fabrication, increased reliability and low cost. The laser exhibits output power of 13dBm in the fiber and is tunable over 30(50GHz) ITU channels. The laser exhibits excellent performance and long-term control and reliability. The laser/transmitter also demonstrates significant increase of its functionality while its size remains small.
