External optical feedback effects on quantum dot (QD) laterally loss-coupled (LLC) distributed feedback (DFB) lasers are reported for the first time in this letter. The critical external feedback ratio that causes coherence collapse of the QD DFB is measured to be -14 dB. No spectral broadening at this feedback level is observed within the 0.06-nm resolution of the optical spectrum analyzer (OSA). Self-homodyne measurements also confirm that the rebroadened linewidth of the QD DFB under -14-dB feedback is still much smaller than the feedback-free linewidth. Under 2.5-Gb/s modulation, eye-diagram measurements show that the signal-to-noise ratio starts to degrade at a feedback ratio of -30 dB in the QD LLC-DFB, about 20 dB higher than a typical quantum-well DFB at the same output power and extinction ratio.
