Paper Abstract

The maximum useful optical power of laser bars is limited due to thermal and lifetime constraints to typical values of 50 W/cm cw or 120 W/cm qcw. A promising new approach is the so-called microstack laser in which several laseractive areas are integrated vertically in the same monolithic structure. In order to drive these structures in series with high efficiency low-resistance tunnel-junctions have to be realized. By optimizing the MOVPE growth process tunnel- junctions with a specific differential resistivity of 2.5 X 10-4 (Omega) cm2 could be obtained, which are suitable for the monolithic inter-connection of laser structures.
