InGaN optical confinement layers (OCLs) were introduced into blue-violet AlInGaN-based laser diodes (LDs), resulting in the drastic improvements of lasing performance. Comparing with conventional LD structure, the lowest threshold current density of 2.3 kA/cm2 has been achieved by adding 100-nm-thick InGaN OCLs which represented maximum optical confinement factor. Additionally, we observed the high quantum efficiency and the uniform emission intensity distribution of InGaN quantum wells grown on lower InGaN OCL than on typical GaN layer. Upper InGaN OCL can reduce Mg diffusion from p-type layers to InGaN active region by separating the distance between InGaN quantum wells and p-type layers.

    We present the theory of an ad hoc mechanism for electron scattering in heavily-doped zinc oxide (ZnO) surface quantum wells (SFQWs). We show that the carriers must be extra scattered in the in-plane from roughness-induced fluctuations in the donor density. In combination with the normal...
