    This study examined systematically the mechanism of light interaction in the sapphire/MgF2/Al triple-layer omnidirectional reflectors (ODR) and its effects on the light output power in near ultraviolet light emitting diodes (NUV-LEDs) with the ODR. The light output power of NUV-LEDs with the...

    We demonstrate ultraviolet InGaN/InAlGaN multiple-quantum-well laser diodes operating under continuous-wave (cw) conditions. The laser diodes were grown on sapphire substrates by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition. Under pulsed bias conditions, we have achieved threshold current densities as...

    Far-infrared absorption of an In[sub 0.2]Ga[sub 0.8]As/GaAs multiple-quantum-well infrared photodetector employing a p–n–p camel diode structure is studied. The detector showed a photocurrent response to normal incident light at approximately 3 μm due to the intersubband hole...

    A superluminescent AlGaAs diode emitting 350 mW of cw optical power at room temperature has been demonstrated for the first time. This extraordinarily high power for nonlasing operation was achieved by combining efficient quantum well material with an edge-emitting, multiple-emitter, short (250...

    The device performance of graded barrier quantum well laser diodes with various buffer layer structures grown by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition has been studied. Devices having four structures (a GaAs buffer layer only, a compositionally graded buffer layer, a superlattice buffer layer,...

    It is demonstrated that in an asymmetric coupled GaAs double quantum well structure, we are able to choose a lasing wavelength out of at least four quantum state transitions by cavity loss control. The assignments of the observed lasing transitions are determined by photoluminescence measurement...

    We observe that stimulated emission from inhomogeneously pumped quantum well laser diodes is shifted down in energy compared with the subband transition energy. Measured spontaneous emission spectra show that this stimulated emission is due to band-to-band transitions shifted by renormalization...

    We have investigated spectroscopically the gain characteristics of InGaN quantum well (QW) diode lasers. While the transparency condition can be reached at a moderate current density, the filling of localized band-edge states is a prerequisite for achieving lasing in this profoundly nonrandom...
