Paper Abstract

Laser diodes and superluminescent diodes have been fabricated using epitaxial structures employing a strained quantum well of InAlGaAs. These devices emit at wavelengths in the 800 - 900 nm range commonly addressed using unstrained GaAs quantum well structures. Results are presented which indicate that the strained layer devices exhibit a marked immunity from sudden unexpected ('freak') failure modes.
