The passivation requirements for high-power 980-nm and mid-power 780-nm quantum-well (QW) ridge-waveguide (RWG) Al-containing laser diodes cleaved in air were investigated. In a direct comparison with argon ablation, sulphation, and silicon-barrier-passivation techniques, nitrided facets with a silicon nitride barrier layer exhibited up to an order of(More)
lOCr stainless steel has been employed to examine the effect of nitrogen on microstructure and strength. Applying Solid state gaseous nitrogenising treatments a whole range of nitrogen martensite structures containing up to 0.45 wt% were obtained. It was found that a linear relationship exists between strength and nitrogen content in precipitate free(More)
