Paper Abstract

The stimulated emission frequencies of laser QW heterostructures are analyzed here as a function of the size and composition of the active region and wide bandgap emitters, the excitation level, and the spectral characteristics of low-dimensional systems with varying thickness of QW layers. The simultaneous lasing conditions at two remote frequencies are determined for varying widths of the reactive region. In a GaAs-AlGaAs system with layer thickness of 50 and 100 A, the wavelength shift can attain 170-250 A.
