Paper Abstract

We report results on strained InGaAs quantum well Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) for optical interconnection applications. The structure was grown by metalorganic vapour-phase epitaxy (MOVPE) and processed as top p-type DBR oxide-confined device. Our VCSELs exhibit low threshold currents and deliver up to 1.77 mW in continuous wave operation at room temperature. Fundamental mode continuous-wave lasing at wavelengths beyond 1300 nm is demonstrated at room temperature. The thermal behaviour of our devices is explained through the threshold current-temperature characteristics. Furthermore, the effective index model is used to understand the modal behaviour.
