Paper Abstract

This study examines catastrophic optical damage in failed, single-mode, 980 nm, InGaAs/GaAlAs/GaAs, ridge wave-guide laser diodes. Analysis techniques were selected for their simplicity to provide quick evaluation of material and device quality. The analysis techniques are chemical etching, optical microscopy, infrared microscopy, and scanning electron microscopy.
