Paper Abstract

In this paper we discuss the integration of various optical components into semiconductor injection lasers in order to improve their properties, thereby enhancing the utility of these lasers. These optical components include 2-dimensional waveguides, optical gratings, prisms and interferometric structures. The paper is divided into four sections; the first of which is a brief review of heterostructure waveguides and laser diodes. Successive sections then describe the utility of integrated optical techniques to control transverse modes, the longitudinal modes and the radiation pattern of lasers.
