We have developed an InAs/InP quantum dot (QD) gain material using a double cap growth procedure and GaP sublayer to tune QDs into the L-band. By using it, a passive L-band mode-locked laser with pulse duration of 445 fs at the repetition rate of 46 GHz was demonstrated. The 3-dB linewidth of the RF spectrum is less than 100 KHz. The lasing threshold injection current is 24 mA with an external differential quantum efficiency of 22% and an average output power of 27 mW. The relationship between pulse duration and 3-dB spectral bandwidth as a function of injection current was investigated.
