    The InGaAs/InAlAs quantum wells offer a huge potential as semiconductor lasers, but factors as interface roughness, internal defects, localized pressures or local electrical fields alter the laser light beam width and consequently the loss of intensity and coherence. The inhomogeneous broadening...
