A partly gain-coupled ridge varied two-section DFB self-pulsation laser for optical microwave generating has been fabricated. It produces microwave with a wide tuning range of more than 135GHz. A successful locked to the microwave frequencies of 30GHz, 40GHz, 50GHz, 60GHz are demonstrated and a timing jitter below 300fs is detected.
