Two-color surface-emitting lasers using a semiconductor coupled multilayer cavity open site

Date: Oct 4, 2016

Two-color surface-emitting lasers were demonstrated, employing a GaAs/AlGaAs coupled multilayer cavity composed of two cavity layers and three distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) multilayers. InGaAs multiple quantum wells (MQWs) with two different well widths were introduced only in the upper cavity, and sandwiched between p- and n-type DBRs. This current-injection type device exhibited two-color lasing in the near-infrared region under room temperature pulsed conditions. Two-color lasing was achieved when the lower cavity had an optimal thickness relative to the upper cavity thickness and the MQW emission properties.
