ABSTRACT
Separate confinement AlInGaAs/InP multiwell laser heterostructures emitting in a wavelength range of 1.2-1.5 μm have been synthesized by metalorganic vapor-phase epitaxy. The threshold current of laser diodes with a strip width of 4.5 μm and a cavity length of 200 μm was as low as 10 mA. With a cavity length of 1.0 mm, the threshold current density was 500-650 A/cm². The laser diodes can operate in a continuous regime without forced cooling at an ambient temperature of up to 170°C. In a temperature range from 10 to 80°C, the characteristic temperature parameter TO reached up to 110 K.
