The butt-coupled (BT) sampled grating distributed Bragg reflector laser diode (SGDBR-LD) was designed and fabricated using planar buried heterostructure (PBH), enabling a low threshold current and a stable fundamental transverse mode. The but-coupled SGDBR-LD's with target tuning ranges of 44.4nm was fabricated, and the tuning ranges were experimentally measured to be 44.4nm. The measured peak periods of the fabricated SGDBR-LD's were well matched with theoretical values and output power is close to calculated values. The side mode suppression ratio of more than 35dB was obtained in the whole tuning range. The output power variation was less than 5dB, which is 4dB smaller than that of RWG structure.
