    Measurements of the low-frequency noise in AlSb/InAs high-electron-mobility transistor structures over the temperature range between 60 and 300 K are reported. Without illumination, the slope of the noise level with frequency was found to be close to 1/f with a Hooge parameter, αH, of...

    The characteristic temperature (T0) of the edge emitting transistor laser (TL) is studied numerically. For the deep-ridge TL, the common base (CB) mode characteristic temperature (T0,CB) is a lot lower than the common emitter (CE) mode characteristic temperature (T0,CE), which is comparable to a...
