Paper Abstract

It is shown that in homogeneous GaAs surface emitting cavity the laser efficiency may be high enough owing to the cavity passive part bleaching, induced by optical field in the laser cavity. The external differential efficiency of 19 and 5.7 % , obtained at 77 and 300 K, respectively, are limited only by a free carrier absorption both in active and passive parts of the cavity. The further laser efficiency improvement is obtained in the variable-gap GaA1As heterostructure,in which the narrow-gap side is used as the cavity active part. The room temperature laser emission of S watts power and external differential efficiency of 14% have been obtained in the GaA1As with grad Eg 3-4 eV/mm under electron beam of 0.6 mA current at the electron energy of 75keV.
