Paper Abstract

Degradation modes and reliability in various types of semiconductor lasers are reviewed in connection with the system application. Reliability and marked degradation modes of conventional DH type Fabry-Perot (FP) and distributed feedback (DFB)lasers are first clarified. Based on their degradation modes,new devices, such as highly coherent multiple-quantum-well (MQW)lasers and strained (M)QW lasers including pumping sources of Er3-doped fiber amplifier, are discussed from the viewpoint of the degradation modes and reliability.
