Paper Abstract

Strained single-quantum-well GaInAsSb/AlGaAsSb diode lasers have exhibited room-temperature threshold current densities as low as 50 A/cm2, one of the lowest values reported for diode lasers at room temperature. These lasers, grown by molecular beam epitaxy, have emission wavelengths of approximately 2.05 micrometers, characteristic temperature of 65 K, internal quantum efficiency of 95%, and internal loss coefficient of 7 cm-1. Single-ended cw power of 1 W is obtained for a 100-micrometer-wide broad-stripe laser. Tapered lasers with a 140-micrometer aperture have exhibited diffraction-limited cw power up to 600 mW.
