Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present results on diode lasers in the wavelength range between 715 nm and 840 nm with Al-free QWs which are embedded in a high-quality AlGaAs LOC broadened waveguide structure with low optical loss and a small vertical far field divergence. The laser structures were grown by LP- MOVPE. We studied tensile-strained GaAsP-QWs as well as compressively strained InGaAsP-QWs with strain compensating barriers. For lasers with GaAsP QWs, the lowest transparency current densities of about 130 A/cm2 were obtained in the wavelength range between 750 nm and 800 nm. Very low transparency current densities were achieved with InGaAsP-QWs at wavelengths above 800 nm. At 810 nm, high output powers (100 micrometer aperture) of about 7 W was achieved with both types of QWs from devices mounted epi up. However, with respect to high temperature operation and reliability tensile- strained GaAsP QWs seem to be the better choice, especially for the wavelength range below 760 nm.
