Abstract
In this paper an attempt is made to investigate the effect of magnetic quantization on tbe pulse power output of spontaneous emission from II-VI and IV-VI lasers operated at relatively low temperatures, on the assumption that the radiative recombination occurs through the recombination centers which obey the well-known Shockley-Read statistics, by formulating the magneto-dispersion laws of the said materials. We have studied the pulse power out-put in the presence of a quantizing magnetic field by considering the combined influences of spin and broadening of Landau levels. It is found, taking CdS laser and PbTe laser as examples, that the pulse power output exhibits oscillatory dependence and increases with increasing carrier density in an oscillatory way. It is also shown that the power output at both low and relatively higher operating temperatures may pass through a maximum or may continuously decrease with increasing magnetic field at the quantum limit. The corresponding results for wide-gap lasers have been obtained as special cases of our generalized formulations.
