Paper Abstract

Microcavity structures are widely utilized as resonators in many optoelectronic devices to improve their optical performance. We present an analytic approach to study the angle-dependent properties in active microcavities with dielectric Bragg reflectors. Based on the hard mirror (HM) model and paraxial propagation approximation, the angle dependent resonance properties can be expressed analytically in virtue of the cavity parameters and incident angle. Making use of these expressions, we found both the position of the active layer and the configuration of dielectric Bragg mirrors contribute to the angular characteristics of resonance in the active microcavity. The varying trend of the standing wave effect, intracavity electrical field and the degradation of quantum efficiency due to different incident angle are discussed in detail. It's found that there exists an optimal cavity configuration where the enhanced intracavity resonance can keep high value within a broader incidence range. Then further performance optimization of the whole devices can be performed.
