GaAs Quantum Well Laser

  • Karl F. Renk
Part of the Graduate Texts in Physics book series (GTP)


As an example of a bipolar semiconductor laser, we treat the GaAs quantum well laser (wavelength around 800 nm). In later chapters, we will study quantum well lasers consisting of other materials and bipolar lasers of other types.
