A buried heterostructure broad area quantum well heterostructure AlxGa1-xAs-GaAs laser diode modified with a small multiple stripe pattern near its center is described that operates single mode and narrow lobe (<2 °) from threshold (Ith) to 2Ith or 3Ith. The broad area (wide stripe) buried heterostructure laser is made by impurity-induced layer disordering.

    We have used short-period all-binary (AlAs)(GaAs) superlattices with layers as thin as three monolayers to synthesize the barrier and cladding regions of GaAs quantum well lasers grown by molecular beam epitaxy. By studying the threshold current of single- and double-well devices as a function...

    A thin AlGaAs barrier (2.5 nm) inserted into a GaAs/AlGaAs single heterojunction formed a square and a wedge-shaped triangular quantum well in the conduction band. In such a structure, the valence band does not have tunnel-coupled energy levels. Hence, the photogenerated valence holes tend to...

    There is currently a large effort to explore spin-orbit effects in semiconductor structures with the ultimate goal of manipulating electron spins with gates. A search for materials with large spin-orbit coupling is therefore important. We report results of a study of spin-orbit effects in a...
