Paper Abstract

Carrier recombination rates are measured in both strained and unstrained quantum well lasers, and as far as possible the various physical mechanisms behind these recombination rates are separated out. The effect of Auger recombination on the higher than expected temperature sensitivity of threshold of 1.5 micrometers quantum well lasers is also examined.
