Understanding waveguiding in vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers

G. Ronald Hadley, K. D. Choquette, K. L. Lear

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


This report presents the first theoretical treatment of waveguiding in VCELs that properly includes the effects of the resonant cavity. The resulting treatment immediately suggests new designs for leaky-mode VCELs that should result in devices operating in the fundamental mode to powers much higher than presently attainable.
