Abstract
We report on room temperature cw operation of type-I semiconductor quantum well (QW) laser diodes based on the GaInAsSb/AlGaAsSb/GaSb material system emitting beyond 2.2 mu m. Lasing is observed in cw mode up to at least 320 K. A high internal quantum efficiency of 65% and a low internal loss coefficient of 5 cm(exp -1) have been achieved for a single QW (SQW) large optical cavity laser at 280 K. An extrapolated threshold current density for infinite cavity length of 144 A/cm2 and 55 A/cm2 has been deduced for the 3 QW and SQW lasers, respectively, which scales with the number of QWs. A maximum cw light output power of 230 mW at 280 K heatsink temperature was obtained for a 3 QW large optical cavity laser with HR/AR coated mirror facets. mounted substrate-side down.
