We present results of tunable GaInNAs lasers with photonic crystal (PhQ mirrors, fabricated from GaAs-AlGaAs layers with a double GaInNAs quantum well emitting at IR wavelength. The devices are realized as ridge waveguide lasers with two coupled segments and a total length between 240 and 580 pm. PhC blocks with different thicknesses are used for the back and front mirror as well as for the intermediate reflector between the two segments. The lasers have threshold currents around 20 mA and output powers up to 6 mW. Tuning of the laser emission over 30 nm is achieved by a variation of the currents injected into the two segments.
