Isolation spectra for InGaAs/GaAs strained single quantum well laser diode optical switches

  • M. Ikeda

The spectral dependence of gain and loss for an InGaAs/GaAs strained single quantum well laser diode were measured. High gain and high isolation at the second quantized transition wavelength can be obtained with a low injection current. A strained single quantum well structure is suitable for construction of an integrated optical matrix switch with low power consumption.
