ABSTRACT
The impact of the electron spin relaxation time on the electron distribution in quantum-dot lasers is analyzed. The results show that a relatively long spin relaxation time (∼300 ps) can create a nonequilibrium carrier distribution in quantum-dot lasers. It is shown that a mechanism we call “spin blocking” increases emission from the quantum-dot excited states and can lead to excited state lasing in quantum-dot lasers. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.

    We have studied temperature dependence of the signals of optical orientation of excitons at resonant excitation of the ensemble of planar self-assembled CdSe/ZnSe quantum dots and show that spin memory in this system survives up to 100K. To describe the experimental results we apply the model...

    We show that the internal optical loss, which increases with free-carrier density in the waveguide region, considerably reduces the modulation bandwidth ω-3 dB of a quantum dot laser. At a certain optimum value j0opt of the dc component of the injection current density, the maximum bandwidth...

    A model is developed that allows the design of lasers based on multilayer quantum dot (QD) arrays to be optimized so as to reach the maximum conversion efficiency at a preset optical output power level. It is shown that, for the present-day state of the art in QD lasers for the 1.2–1.3...

    Ground state lasing of electrically driven vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers with a quantum-dot (QD) gain medium grown using metal-organic vapor phase epitaxy was realized.
