Paper Abstract

This paper investigates internal physical mechanisms that have thus far prevented current-injected InGaN/GaN verticalcavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) from lasing. Advanced device simulation is applied to a realistic VCSEL design. Several obstacles to lasing are identified, including current leakage, lateral carrier non-uniformity, and selfheating during pulsed operation.
