    Gain measurements were performed on buried heterostructure single quantum well lasers to ascertain the transparency current density, which represents a basic limit in the threshold current. By using the optimal design approach, a lowest threshold of 0.55 mA in a 120-μm-long device was...

    The spectral characteristics of intraband absorption on bound-free transitions in semiconductor quantum wells are analyzed. Numerical results indicate that both comparatively narrowband (∼30 meV) and broadband (>=200 meV) absorption may occur, which may be important in infrared detector design.

    A single quantum well laser with a 2-mm-wide aperture has exhibited low threshold current density and nearly 100% packing fraction. The lateral structure relies on epitaxial growth on a corrugated substrate to frustrate radiative lateral processes and it thus eliminates the need for isolation at...
