Abstract
We obtain numerical results for the injection current in the active region and the total series electrical resistance of proton-implanted top-surface-emitting lasers with top annular contact. We investigate the variation of the resistance and the current uniformity over a range of values of parameters such as the number of periods in the p-type top spreading region, the active region radius and the specific contact resistance. Approximate analytical expressions are also obtained for the injection current in the confinement region and the agreement between analytical and numerical results is investigated for varying active region radius values.
