We have investigated the molecular beam epitaxial growth and characteristics of self-organized In(Ga)As quantum dot lasers grown on GaAs and silicon. Utilizing the techniques of tunnel injection and acceptor-doping of quantum dots, we have achieved high performance 1.3 μm InAs quantum dot lasers on GaAs, which exhibit Jth=180 A/cm2, T0=∞, dg/dn≈1×10-14 cm2, f-3dB=11 GHz, chirp of 0.1 Å and zero α-parameter. Utilizing thin (⩽ 2 μm) GaAs buffer layers and quantum dots as dislocation filters, we have demonstrated room-temperature operational In0.5Ga0.5As quantum dot lasers grown directly on silicon, which are characterized by relatively low threshold current (Jth ~ 900 A/cm2), high output power (> 150 mW), large characteristic temperature (T0 = 244 K) and constant output slope efficiency (⩾ 0.3 W/A) in the temperature range of 5 to 95 °C.
