Paper Abstract

The current status and understanding of various degradation phenomena in III-V optoelectronic devices are discussed, with special consideration given to semiconductor lasers and light emitting diodes fabricated from GaAlAs/GaAs, InGaAsP/InP, and InGaAsP/InGaP/GaAd double-heterostructure materials. Three major degradation phenomena are discussed: rapid degradation, gradual degradation, and catastrophic failure. For each type of these degradation phenomena, methods for eliminating degradation are proposed.
