Paper Abstract

The optical gain characteristics of high Al-content AlGaN quantum wells (QWs) are analyzed for deep UV lasers. The effect of crystal-field split-off hole (CH) and heavy-hole (HH) bands crossover on the gain characteristics of AlGaN QW with AlN barriers is analyzed. Attributing to the strong transition between conduction - CH bands, the TM spontaneous emission recombination rate is enhanced significantly for high Al-content AlGaN QWs. Large TM-polarized material gain is shown as achievable for high Al-content AlGaN QWs, which indicates the feasibility of TM lasing for lasers emitting at ~220-230 nm.
