Paper Abstract

In this short review we describe phenomenologically what is known about laser and light emitting diodes (LEDs) degradation and review the physical understanding of it. We will then examine the issues that are relevant to the more novel vertical surface emitting lasers devices and to the new materials that are being used in the fabrication of LEDs and lasers.
