High-output-power operation of 1.55-μm-wavelength distributed-feedback (DFB) lasers with a novel mass-transport grating (MTG) structure which is composed of InAsP buried with InP are reported. To improve high output power characteristics, we have investigated the influence of the width of the active layer on the light output power and the spectral linewidth at high injection current. It is confirmed that the increase of the active layer width is effective to realize high output power and to reduce the linewidth power product. The fabricated lasers show high single-longitudinal-mode output power of 180 mW, which is the highest value reported for 1.55-μm DFB lasers. They also exhibit narrow spectral linewidths less than 0.3 MHz and low noise characteristics of -159 dB/Hz. Moreover, we have obtained the mean time to failure of longer than 105 h with a lifetime test over 200 h at 50°C
