Metallorganic vapor phase epitaxy (MOVPE) technology is increasingly used as a platform for the growth of vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSEL) because of its high throughput, low surface defect density, continuous compositional grading control, and the flexibility for materials and dopant choices. The MOVPE capability of extremely high wafer uniformity, control accuracy and composition, and run-to-run reproducibility are presented. The growth is performed on an EMCORE GS3200 rotating-disk MOVPE reactor. A normal-incidence reflectometer using a W-halogen lamp and a silicon detector with a 10-nm interference filter is mounted on top of a mini-flange viewport of the reactor.
