Paper Abstract

We have developed two Al-free active region laser structures, which have a high maximum wall-plug efficiency (WPE) of 69% on an uncoated 2 mm x 100 μm single emitter broad area (BA) laser. Both structures include a Large Optical Cavity (LOC) with an optimized doping profile. One structure contains improved interfaces between material layers, and the other one an optimized strain compensated quantum well.
