Apodised chirped gratings based on InGaAsP/InP deep-ridge waveguides with vertical-groove surface gratings were fabricated. Reflectivity ripple and group delay ripple were reduced from around 4 dB to 1 dB and from around 5 ps to 2 ps, respectively, by apodisation over a wavelength range of around 20 nm.
