Paper Abstract

Certain optoelectronic applications for which it would be desirable to use an injection laser diode (ILD) require that the light source be exposed to a combined hostile environment of both radiation and high temperature. Because of the complexity of ILD's it is very possi-ble that these two hostile components will have detrimental synergistic effects on the laser. We have studied the effects of fast neutron irradiation on the high temperature (T<100°C) operation of ILD's. In general, it was found that the ILD's were more sensitive to irradia-tion at higher temperatures, and that the lasers with the least temperature variation in threshold current were the least sensitive to irradiation.
