Abstract

We describe the operation of lasers having active regions composed of InP selfassembled quantum dots embedded in In0.5Al0.3Ga0.2P grown on GaAs (100) substrates by MOCVD. InP quantum dots grown on In0.5Al0.3Ga0.2P have a high density on the order of about 1–2×10 cm−2 with a dominant size of about 10–15 nm for 7.5 ML growth.[1] These In0.5Al0.3Ga0.2P/InP quantum dots have previously been characterized by atomic-force microscopy, high-resolution transmission electron microscopy, and photoluminescence.[2] We report here the 300K operation of optically pumped red-emitting quantum dots using both double quantum-dot active regions and quantum-dot coupled with InGaP quantum-well active regions. Optically and electrically pumped 300K lasers have been obtained using this active region design; these lasers show improved operation compared to the lasers having QD-based active regions with threshold current densities as low as Jth ∼ 0.5 KA/cm2.
