Paper Abstract

The temperature sensitivity of threshold current of double quantum well lasers is studied both theoretically and experimentally over the temperature range 77 K to 300 K. It is found that these devices behave predictably up to 160 K but that the model used fails to describe the temperature sensitivity beyond 160 K. Lasers with reduced threshold gain have a lower temperature sensitivity around room temperature at the expense of an increased threshold current density.
