Paper Abstract

Q-switched diode lasers are of interest as a source in optical communication systems and in very high speed optical interconnects between digital circuits and systems. Buried-heterostructure Q-switched diode lasers have been made with thresholds as low as 15 mA. The lasers operate continuously at room temperature. Modulation has been observed at rates up to 7 GHz. Evidence of several modes of Q-switching has been obtained including a new mode of operation which should permit modulation at rates of several tens of gigahertz.
