Paper Abstract

The spectral tunability of properly designed quantum well lasers is demonstrated to equal the range of dye lasers. Theoretical and measured gain spectra are presented to support this statement, and stepwise wavelength tuning over a 125 nm span in GaAs/AlGaAs lasers and 175 nm in InGaAs/AlGaAs lasers are shown.
