The thesis covers the development of novel active regions for high-performance edge-emitting lasers (EEL) and vertical cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) in optical communication. Three main themes of the thesis cover the design, fabrication, and physics of the novel and alternative active regions for GaAs-based VCSELs for the three optical communications windows at wavelength regimes of 850-nm, 1300-nm, and 1500-nm, with the emphases on the 1300-nm InGaAsN QW GaAs-based active regions and on the novel design of 1500-nm GaAs-based active regions
The studies include the utilization of compressively-strained InGaAsP quantum well (QW) active regions for the 850-nm VCSELs. The research on the long-wavelength lasers covers the design, growth, temperature analysis, carrier transport, and gain analysis of the InGaAsN (lambda = 1.3 mum) quantum well lasers. The novel and original design of the GaAsSb-(In)GaAsN type-II QWs to achieve 1500--3000 nm GaAs-based active regions is discussed in detail
