ABSTRACT
It is shown that one can attain simultaneously width of the lasing spectrum in excess of 15 nm and average spectral power density higher than 10 mW/nm in injection continuous-wave lasers based on self-assembled quantum dots and emitting in the wavelength range of approximately 1.3 μm.

    The effect of the number of InAs/InP quantum dot layers (QDLs) on the static parameters of 1.55 μm emitting lasers was studied in the range of 1-3 QDLs. Due to the high modal gain of Γg0 ≥ 15.5 cm-1 per QDL ground state lasing of lasers with only a single QDL could be achieved with...

    The influence of quantum-dot (QD) height distribution on the detection wavelengths of InGaAs-capped quantum-dot infrared photodetectors (QDIPs) is investigated. For devices with 2.8 and 2.0 mono-layer (ML) InAs coverage, 7.6 and 10.4 μm detection wavelengths are observed. The results suggest...

    The gain spectra of a submonolayer (SML) InGaAs/GaAs quantum dot (QD) laser working at 30°C were measured using the Hakki–Paoli method. It is found that the maximum modal gain of QD ground states is as high as 44 cm-1 and no gain saturation occurs below the threshold at the lasing...
