  • We report a backgated InAs/GaSb double quantum well device grown on GaSb substrate. The use of the native substrate allows for high materials quality with electron mobility in excess of 500 000 cm{sup 2}/Vs at sheet charge density of 8 × 10{sup 11} cm{sup −2} and approaching 100 000 cm{sup 2}/Vs near the charge neutrality point. Lattice matching between the quantum well structure and the substrate eliminates the need for a thick buffer, enabling large back gate capacitance and efficient coupling with the conduction channels in the quantum wells. As a result, quantum Hall effects are observed in both electron and hole regimes across the hybridizationmore » gap.« less
  • We demonstrate the first room-temperature low-threshold continuous-wave (cw) operation of Al{sub 0.3}Ga{sub 0.7}As/GaAs single quantum well (SQW) heterostructure lasers grown by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) on Si substrates using techniques of SiO{sub 2} back coating and thermal cycle annealing. The all-MOCVD-grown SQW lasers on GaAs/Si with etch pit density of 1.5{times} 10{sup 7} cm{sup {minus}2} have threshold current as low as 55 mA (1.41 kA/cm{sup 2}) under cw at room temperature. The SiO{sub 2} back coating is effective to obtain excellent current-voltage characteristics. Thermal cycle annealing is also found to improve the crystallinity of GaAs/Si and to contribute tomore » room-temperature cw operation of the lasers on Si substrates.« less
  • This paper reports GaAs--AlGaAs and strained layer In{sub 0.3}Ga{sub 0.7}As--GaAs--AlGaAs graded index separate confinement heterostructure single quantum well lasers grown by molecular beam epitaxy. The strained layer lasers have threshold currents of 12 mA for 3 {mu}m {times} 400 {mu}m devices (1000 A/cm{sup 2}) and threshold current densities of 167 A/cm{sup 2} for 150 {mu}m {times} 800 {mu}m devices. The threshold currents of strained layer InGaAs lasers are lower than those of GaAs lasers for all dimensions tested with 20 {mu}m wide GaAs devices exhibiting threshold currents three times those of In{sub 0.3}Ga{sub 0.7}As devices. Microwave modulation of 10 {mu}mmore » {times} 500 {mu}m strained layer lasers with simple mesa structures yields bandwidths of 6 GHz. For all dimensions tested, strained layer InGaAs devices have greater bandwidths than GaAs devices. These measurements confirm theoretical predictions of the effects of valence band modification due to biaxially compressive strain.« less
