We demonstrate a two-step laterally tapered 1.55-μm spot size converter distributed feedback laser diode (SSC DFB LD) having a planar buried heterostructure-type active waveguide and a ridge-type passive waveguide fabricated by using a nonselective grating process. Unlike conventional SSC DFB LDs, where a selective grating is employed, this SSC DFB LD employed a nonselective grating over the entire device region in order to make its fabrication much simpler than that of the conventional SSC DFB LDs. The two-step laterally tapered SSC is effective in removing an unwanted wavelength peak originating from the SSC section having a multiquantum well and a grating under it. The fabricated SSC DFB LD operates at 1.553-μm wavelength and shows a far field pattern in horizontal and vertical directions of 13.4/spl deg/ and 19.5/spl deg/, respectively.
