The modulation bandwidth has been identified as a specific limitation of quantum-dot or quantum-dash (QDash) lasers for direct modulation application. Solutions using tunnel injection and p-doping have already been demonstrated to increase the modulation bandwidth above 10 GHz, but with complex tunnel injection design and p-doping induced high internal losses. We show in this letter that the use of optimized QDashes and waveguide structure is sufficient to reach such high bandwidth at 1.55 mum. The device is validated by a large signal modulation demonstration at 10 Gb/s.
