2 May 1997 Thermally induced delayed turn-on in thin p-clad lasers
Author Affiliations +
Lasing delays on the order of microseconds have been observed in wide-stripe, thin p-clad, InGaAs single quantum well lasers with `thick' p+ cap layers. A lasing delay mechanism involving transient, thermally induced refractive index changes due to ohmic loss in the contact resistance is proposed and investigated using computer modeling.
