Paper Abstract

Recent results of our work an InGaAsP/InP single element, diode lasers are presented. Two structures are compared: 1) the double channel planar buried heterostructure (DCPBH) and 2) the buried crescent on p-type substrates (p-BC), for power and optical-beam quality. Lifetest data for our DCPBH's is given, and compared to recently published lifetest data for p-BOs. It is clear that InGaAsP/InP lasers have high reliability at high output powers, and that buried crescent-type structures have superior optical quality in the output beam over DCPBH structures.
