Paper Abstract

We present the growth and characterization of vertical- cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs) from visible to near-infrared wavelength grown by metalorganic vapor phase epitaxy. Discussions on the growth issue of VCSEL materials include the control on growth rate and composition using an in situ normal-incidence reflectometer, optimization of ultra-high material uniformity, and comprehensive p- and n- type doping study in AlGaAs by CCl4 and Si2H6 over the entire Al composition range. We also demonstrate our recent achievements of selectively oxidized VCSELs which include the first room-temperature continues-wave demonstration of all-AlGaAs 700-nm red VCSELs, high- performance n-side up 850-nm VCSELs, and low threshold current and low-threshold voltage 1.06 micrometer VCSELs using InGaAs/GaAsP strain-compensated quantum wells.
