Physical parameters contributing to the threshold current and its temperature characteristics of 1.5 micrometers semiconductor lasers have been separately measured in lattice matched and compressively strained lasers. It is found that the reduction of threshold current density in strained devices is attributed to the reduction of Auger recombination, intervalence band absorption and transparency carrier density brought about by the introduction of strain. It is also found that the temperature sensitivity of both lattice matched and strained devices is dominated by the strong differential gain change with temperature, instead of Auger recombination.
