Paper Abstract

The effect of the length of wide tunable AMQW laser on its output power is demonstrated in this paper. The InP based AMQW laser is custom designed and fabricated to have a large tuning range. The experimental data showed that the output power profile is not following the traditional behavior of laser diodes. The data showed that the laser length can be categorized in three categories, below transitional cavity length (BTCL), above the transitional cavity length (ATCL), and at the transitional cavity length (TCL). The BTCL and ATCL lengths are not suitable for wide tunable applications however the TCL length is suitable for wide tunable applications and the power profile is closer to the traditional power profile of laser diodes. This type of AMQW laser diodes can be used in many applications.
