We report the improvement of frequency response characteristics of 2.5 Gbps modulator integrated distributed feedback (MI-DFB) laser modules using new impedance matching technique. Frequency responses for the fabricated module using the '+' shaped microstrip line for impedance matching have been significantly improved such as the RF return loss of 11 dB and the 3 dB frequency bandwidth of 4.1 GHz, compared to 6 dB return loss and 1.5 GHz bandwidth for the conventional module. These results can
