Abstract
Active media based on submonolayer (SML) quantum-dots are a novel gain material that potentially combines the high gain of semiconductor quantum-wells with the ultrafast gain recovery of Stranski-Krastanov quantumdots. By comparison of theory and experiment, we find an ultrafast gain recovery timescale well below one picosecond, along with a high optical gain. We investigate SML lasers theoretically and provide comparisons with conventional quantum-dot devices. We find a substantial increase in small-signal bandwidth and largesignal modulation capability. Our results show that semiconductor submonolayer laser and amplifier devices are promising candidates for high-speed optoelectronics as well as integrated photonics applications.
