Recent Advances in Semiconductor LaserTechnology for InGaAsP epilayers, stable lattice matching to the substrates is often difficult. 1m. It is very interesting to note that for semiconductor layers below a critical thickness, say, a few nanometers as often used in fabricating quantum-well lasers, the mismatching becomes less critical. In fact, the strain developed as a result of lattice mismatching may even improve laser operation and enhance its lifetime. Applying tensile or compressive strain via built-in lattice mismatching in InGaAslInP MQW devices improves the laser's properties.

The current flow through the laser is restricted to a narrow strip. Index-guided lasers offer better beam quality, are more efficient, and usually have a lower threshold current in GaAIAs diodes. They are used for most diode laser applications. 3 shows some functionally similar types of index-guided laser structures on the market. These include the buried heterostructure which, has a narrow active region surrounded by material of lower refractive index (Fig. 3A); the channeled-substrate planar structure, which has an active layer grown on a substrate with a channel etched into it (Fig.

Transverse Mode Control Transverse mode control can be achieved by limiting the thickness of the active layer, the layer within which the process of recombination takes place. Lm. Lm, only the lowest mode, thus a single transverse mode, is possible [16]. Heterojunction structure can also confine the injected carriers in the respective regions and prevent most carrier leakage. Efforts at carrier confinement greatly reduce the threshold current density. Lateral Mode Control If the lateral dimension (y direction) of the active layer of a laser is unlimited, many lateral modes can exist.
