Paper Abstract

In this paper, we discuss the operation of a non-planar GaAs/GaA1As laser grown by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition. The non-planar structure is achieved by using a self-aligned masking technique. The masking causes lateral spatial variations to develop during the growth of the active and/or cladding regions. These lasers inherently have both lateral current confinement and lateral real refractive index waveguidance. Threshold currents of ≈40 mamps and differential quantum efficiencies of 32% are measured very reproducibly over a wafer.
