We report the development of a current-controlled widely tunable laser diode based on InP with photonic crystal mirrors and an integrated amplifier section for stabilized power output. The laser consists of three longitudinally coupled ridge waveguide cavities that are coupled through photonic crystal mirror segments. A laterally defined binary superimposed grating provides complex-coupled distributed feedback into two of the laser cavities. The wavelength can be switched over a range of 26 nm. Through adjustment of the current into a third amplifier section, the output power can be stabilized over the tuning range of the laser.
