Paper Abstract

There is currently great interest in fabrication of structures that are two and three dimensional analogs of the conventional quantum well. We review here the physics behind the use of arrays of such lower dimensional structures in semiconductor laser active layers. Methods which are currently under investigation for producing such structures will be discussed.
