Conditions of fabrication of first-order distributed-feedback surface gratings designed for single-mode quantum cascades lasers with the emission wavelength of about are presented. The -deep rectangular-shaped gratings with the period of about and duty cycle in the range of 65% to 71% made by the standard photolithography are demonstrated. The wavenumber difference of about 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 . Moreover, the emission wavelength of the lasers could be tuned with temperature at a rate of in the temperature range of 77 to 120 K. The full width at half maximum of the emitted spectra is .
