The index -guiding property of the structure is derived from the fact that in a DR structure, the potential barriers produced by the semiconductor junctions of higher-bandgap materials have lower indexes of refraction, thus providing the active layer with a waveguide property for guiding the propagation. 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.
As early as 1967, researchers realized that the diffused homojunction of the laser could account for most of these troubles. Suggestions were made to replace the homojunction with a heterojunction by alloying two semiconductors of different energy bandgaps or by another processing technique that makes abrupt junctions [3, 4]. We divide the discussion into three parts: (1) laser materials and processing; (2) laser structure tailoring; (3) laser performance improvements. Semiconductor Materials and Processing for Long-Wavelength Lasers Semiconductor Compounds and Lattice Matching The choice of semiconductor materials for a laser depends on the wavelength required for the operating system.
The original quantum-well structure is called quantum face (QF) here. Fabrication of QW and QB lasers is difficult as the demand for semiconductor material of fine size on the order of 10 nm cannot be met easily at present. Wavelength Tuning in Quantum-Well Lasers Reviewing the properties of a MQW laser as described, we shall say that all desirable characteristics we set out to improve have been reached except for wavelength tunability. An external cavity tuning technique can be used to tune the wavelength of a QW laser.
