Title: Controlling the radiation spectrum of quantum-well heterostructure lasers by ultrasonic strain

Abstract

The radiation of a semiconductor laser has been modulated in frequency by variable strain. The strain is excited by injecting bulk or surface ultrasonic waves. Dynamic and static analyses of the variations in the spectral characteristics of the radiation in the presence of sound are performed. A model is suggested and the data obtained are analyzed theoretically. The radiation frequency modulation in InGaAsP/InP heterostructures produced by surface waves is shown to be determined mainly by the band gap modulation of the active region.
