By using focused ion beam lithography high performance 1.55-/spl mu/m emitting distributed Bragg reflector lasers were realized suitable for high-speed optical telecommunication. Threshold currents of 8 mA and continuous-wave efficiencies of 0.37 W/A for 600-/spl mu/m-long devices were achieved. Stable single-mode emission with sidemode suppression ratios of > 40 dB were observed for the entire operation range. By relative intensity noise measurements an intrinsic 3-dB modulation frequency of > 10 GHz was estimated for a single-mode output power of 23 mW.
