ABSTRACT
AlGaInAsSb-based multiple quantum well broad area lasers (BALs) with a monolithically integrated Fourier-optical 4f spatial-frequency-filter for transverse mode selection (TMS) are realized. Laser samples with filters for the selection of the fundamental transverse mode (no. 0; TMS0) and—for proof of principle-higher order modes, here exemplarily mode no. 8 (TMS8), are prepared; their emission characteristics are investigated. The concept of BAL and TMS integration within the active laser chip is verified.

    The dynamic characteristics of an edge-emitting laser under large-signal modulation are analyzed in the frequency domain using a harmonic balance method on device level. The simulations reveal the nonlinearities of the carrier dynamics in the quantum well region which strongly influence the...

    The optical properties of InGaAsN QW grown on AlGaAs/GaAs cladding layers were investigated. Al contamination in the quantum well due to the memory effect is responsible for the degradation of optical quality. We propose a growth method to reduce the Al contamination by growth interruption and...

    The impact of the interface roughness on intersubband transitions (ISTs) in quantum wells is analyzed as an inhomogeneous broadening due to localization rather than a traditional scattering process. The results offer simple explanation for the temperature dependent spectra of gain and absorption...

    Using a combination of experimental and theoretical techniques, we investigated the band alignment and the carrier recombination processes occurring in GaAsSb/GaAs structures. We find that for Sb fractions ∼30%, the band alignment is slightly type II. From studies on lasers based upon this...

    A type-II “W” diode laser with five quantum well periods and emitting at λ≈3.5 μm operated in cw mode to T=218 K. A second device produced more than 500 mW of cw power at 80 K. The threshold current density at T=78 K was 31 A/cm2, and pulsed operation was observed to 317...

    The simulations of polariton relaxation and Bose condensation in GaN microcavities (both bulk and with quantum wells) are performed by solving semiclassical Boltzmann equations. A complete set of kinetic phase diagrams for the most important parameters is calculated. We show that such cavities...

    This work reports on InAs quantum wells (QWs) grown on GaAs-based metamorphic In0.83Al0.17As buffers for type-I mid-infrared (MIR) emission.

    High-power broad-area laser diodes often suffer from a widening of the slow-axis far-field with increasing current (lateral far-field blooming). This effect is commonly attributed to self-heating. Utilizing self-consistent electro-thermal-optical simulations, we analyze previous experimental...
