Paper Abstract

High performance, AlGaInP, strained-layer single quantum well, semiconductor laser diodes emitting in the 630 to 680 nm spectral range have been designed, fabricated, and characterized. Thermal calculations and modelling have been carried out both to estimate the thermal resistivity of various AlGaInP alloys and to optimize the device geometry and performance. Threshold current densities below 300 A/cm2 at room temperature, cw outputs over 1 Watt, and operating lifetimes in excess of 10,000 hours have been achieved.
