Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The temperature behavior of 1.5 μm GaInNAsSb edge-emitting lasers is analyzed through variation of cavity length and temperature. Monomolecular recombination and intervalence band absorption dominate the threshold current, and carrier leakage becomes important at elevated temperatures.
