Paper Abstract

The fabrication, performance and application of indexed guided proton bombarded DH lasers emitting at .8, 1.3 and 1.5 microns are described. The devices are fabricated by single step LPE and utilize double current confinement configuration in order to minimize current leakage and also achieve very good lateral and optical confinements. In the 1.3 micron devices, threshold currents as low as lOmA have been achieved and coupling efficiency as high as 43% has been obtained, enabling us to linearly drive the devices up to 5mW power output from a singlemode fiber.
