Paper Abstract

Near ideal injection lasers can be grown by liquid phase epitaxy but the growth process must include etching of a first epitaxial growth and controlled wetting, melt back and re-growth in a second growth cycle. The growth and properties of two such lasers, the strip buried heterostructure (SBH) and loss stabilized buried optical guide (LSBOG) are described in some detail. Similar growth procedures provide integration of lasers with waveguides, modulators, distributed Bragg reflectors and the formation of uniform arrays of lasers with laser to laser separation as close as 15 μm.
