Paper Abstract

Based on the vacuum field in a quantum well vertical cavity surface emitting laser and the state of electron in a quantum well, the TE mode and TM mode spontaneous emission spectra are compared at 300 K. The results show that TE mode spontaneous emission in the direction perpendicular to the surface can be enhanced with a half-wavelength cavity, while TM mode spontaneous emission is suppressed greatly.
