Progress in high-power broadband GaSb-based superluminescent diodes emitting at 2-3 um (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

We present the state-of-the-art electrically pumped single transverse-mode superluminescent diodes (SLDs) emitting in the 2 – 3 µm wavelength range at room temperature. The structures were fabricated by MBE to include two GaSb-based quantum wells and a double-pass ridge waveguide architecture. A cavity suppression element was used for avoiding lasing at high current. Highest power was obtained for SLDs around 2 µm, exceeding 120 mW in CW and > 300 mW in pulsed operation, with spectral width of ~ 40 nm. SLDs around 2.60 µm emitted a record 15 mW output power and exhibited ~ 80 nm spectral width under pulsed operation. Wavelength extension towards 3 µm is discussed.
