Abstract

GaAs-based continuous-wave quantum-dot vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) operating at 1.3 μm at 20°C with output power of 1.2 mW have been realized. Threshold currents approach 1–1.5 mA for 8-μm oxide apertures. Operating voltages are ∼2 V. Long operation lifetimes in excess of 5000 h at 50°C without degradation have been achieved. This article describes these breakthroughs, which are based on our development of complex self-organized growth technologies for defect-free stacked quantum dots.
