Abstract
The Group IV Photonics (GFP) which include an alloy of Si, Ge & Sn that gives a direct bandgap material (GeSn, SiGeSn) in near and mid-IR region used as an active material in photonics devices. The multiple quantum well SiGeSn/GeSn transistor laser structure is considered in this paper and performance parameters are evaluated for the same. The result shows that the threshold base current density (2.6 kA/cm2) for the proposed device initially decreases with increasing number of quantum well (QW) and later on it saturates. The current gain and output photon density of the device decreases and increases respectively, with increasing number of QW.
