Single longitudinal mode continuous-wave operation of GaN-based distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) laser diodes with 10th-order surface gratings is demonstrated. The DBR consists of periodic V-shaped grooves on a 2 µm wide ridge waveguide fabricated by using electron-beam lithography and plasma etching. The effect of different lengths of the DBR section and the gain section on the device performance has been studied. Periodic mode hops to the adjacent longitudinal Fabry-Perot resonator mode at shorter wavelength have been observed when increasing the operation current. Between the mode hops, single longitudinal mode emission at around 405 nm is achieved with a full width at half-maximum of 0.03 nm. A linear redshift of the emission wavelength with increasing temperature of 0.019 nm/K was derived.
