Junction-side up operation of (Al)GaInP lasers with very low threshold currents

View publication

Abstract

Strained (Al)GaInP quantum-well ridge lasers with AlGaAs cladding layers have been fabricated on a 5°-off oriented GaAs substrate. Owing to a heat spreading layer, the devices can be operated junction-side up with a CW threshold current of 13 mA. Singlemode operation is achieved up to power levels of 15mW for devices with uncoated facets.P. Unger, P. Roentgen and G. L.
