Paper Abstract

Semiconductor lasers and photodiodes for the 1.8-2.5 micron spectral range are described which can be used in gas analysis systems. The characteristics of pulsed lasers with output optical power reaching 1 W and low-threshold single-mode lasers are presented. The photodiodes have high quantum efficiency (0.6 without antireflection coating) and high speed or response (0.5 ns at reverse bias of several volts).
