Paper Abstract

This paper describes the various parameters which must be specified or measured for the cw GaA/As injection laser diode when it is to be used as a source in integrated optical applications. These include width of the current stripe, effective waveguide thickness and location, diode thermal response, and effect of modulation and drive current on the optical power and spectrum. In each case, examples are given citing the expected or measured behavior and comparing this with results obtainable in available cw laser diodes.
