Paper Abstract

Data from regrown-lens-train lasers are used to validate a computer program for their simulation. Curves of light output as a function of current have been calculated and compare well with experimental data taken for three lasers with widely varying geometries. The optimum reflectivity of the front facet of a laser with a high-reflectivity back facet is calculated, and the output power is about the same as was obtained for the double- facet output of the experimental laser with uncoated facets. The power loss due to the finite width of the lenses is estimated.
