Paper Abstract

Wall plug efficiency (WPE) of 830 nm single mode LD is dramatically improved with AlGaInP material. Conventional near infrared LDs based on AlGaAs have poor temperature characteristics due to small energy gap in conduction band between a p-cladding layer and an active layer. An AlGaInP based LD is a most effective candidate for the excellent characteristics because of the large gap. A high power 830 nm LD is newly designed based on AlGaInP. The LD shows excellent temperature characteristics as To of 154 K, and its WPE is around 40% at 400mW, CW output, 60°C case temperature. They also show very stable operation at the condition up to 1,100 hours.
