The structure and properties of a high performance InGaAs/InGaAsP separate confinement heterostructure multiple quantum well laser operating at 1.54 μm are described. The laser has low threshold current (18 mA), high quantum efficiency (22% facet), high cw output power (42 mW/facet), and weak dependence of the threshold currents and efficiencies on cavity length.
