We have measured the temperature range ΔTSM of one particular longitudinal mode operation in short-cavity surface emitting (SE) lasers. ΔTSM was increased up to 103 K by reducing the cavity length to be 4 µm. It is expected that a short-cavity SE laser shows stable single mode operation in a wide temperature range.
