Paper Abstract

Use of aluminum-free epitaxial structures for near-infrared laser diodes has been an active research area in the past decade. These edge-emitting laser diodes have demonstrated operational lifetimes exceeding 10,000 hours at high output powers and high efficiencies. Improvements in epitaxial structure, processing, and packaging have enabled these results. In this paper, we will review developments in aluminum-free laser diodes. We describe our recent work with these devices and conclude by discussing reliability issues.
