The dynamic optical spectrum and optical transmission characteristics of a 1.55 ¿m conventional distributed feedback (DFB) laser with a side mode were analysed. The laser used in the experiment came to operate in two modes although initially it had operated in single-mode. When this laser was directly modulated by setting the bias current around the threshold, the mode switching between a main mode and a side mode was observed to be similar to mode partitioning in Fabry-Perot (FP) lasers. The mode switching affects considerably the bit error rate performance of 113 km single-mode fibre transmission at 140 Mbit/s.
