Paper Abstract

The current status of the lead salt diode lasers developed at Lebedev Physical Institute is described. Diffused lasers, LPE lattice-matched PbSnSeTe lasers, PbSSe diode lasers with controlled carrier concentration, and PbS/PbSSes/PbSnSe heterostructure lasers with a quantum-well active region are discussed. The lasers have improved performance due to their superior electrical and optical confinement.
