FIG. 1.

(a) Simulated eigenfrequency as a function of the grating duty cycle with a periodicity of 1.43 m. (b) The losses ( , and ) change with duty cycle . (c) The coupling coefficient (grating depth = 130 nm) changes with duty cycle . Gray area indicates the optimized coupling strength range ( = 1–2).

cw operation spectra at different temperature from 10 °C to 75 °C. Upper panel inset: Extracted threshold current density and emission spectrum at different temperatures. The black dotted curve is exponential fitted by expression J = J exp(T/T) for temperature range of 10–75 °C. The red dotted line shows the linearly fitted tuning characteristics of the wavelength with temperature for the same device. Lower panel inset: single mode emission spectra at various cw injection currents at 15 °C. The spectra are obtained at injection current of 0.3–0.5 A with a step of 0.05 A.
