Paper Abstract

We report GaInAsSb/GaSb multiple quantum well lasers with type-II band alignment operating at room temperature. Basic properties of GaInAsSb/GaSb system in presence of strains are presented. Room temperature lasing has been achieved at wavelengths up to 2.65 micrometer. For the first time, stimulated emission has been obtained from a type-III quantum well structure at room temperature at 1.98 micrometer and 2.32 micrometer for the structures with 6- and 12-angstrom-thick InAs quantum wells, respectively. Modification of the band structure near interfaces of the type-II quantum wells due to carrier injection is shown to be a decisive factor allowing to obtain low threshold lasing in quantum well structures with indirect radiative recombination.
