ABSTRACT
We report the use of a stress-inducing dielectric mask to improve the spatial resolution of the proximity quantum-well intermixing process. Photoluminescence and Raman spectroscopy were used to study the band gap modification and the spatial resolution using Ar plasma in the InGaAs/InGaAsP laser structure. A spatial resolution of 2.4 μm has been achieved with the presence of an SixNy annealing cap as a stress-inducing mask. The simple technique provides a promising approach of lateral band gap tuning with a high spatial resolution for high-density photonic integrated circuits.
