ABSTRACT
Examines the formation of lateral p-n junctions in aluminum gallium arsenide lasers grown on gallium arsenide substrates by metalorganic vapor phase epitaxy. Presence of a current-blocking layer on the lasers; Formation of conducting channels over the etched ridges of the substrates; Confirmation of the formation by electron-beam-induced junction current.
