A multi-quantum-well (MQW) active layer has been introduced to 1.3-μm GaInAsP/InP surface-emitting (SE) lasers. Room temperature pulsed operation of a 1.3-μm MQW SE laser was obtained for the first time and its threshold current was 15 mA. CW (continuous wave) operation up to 7°C (threshold current Ith=7.6 mA at 7°C) was achieved.
Key words : surface emitting laser, multi-quantum well, low threshold current, buried heterostructure, Si/Al2O3, GaInAsP/InP
