Designing better AlGaInP based visible VCSELsT.E. Sale, E B Reilly, +5 authors S M PinchesConference Digest. ISLC 1998 NARA. 1998 IEEE 16th…1998AlGaInP edge emitting lasers with AlGaAs cladding mimic the GaInP SQW active region of surface-emitters. We use these to determine limitations in the absence of cavity effects and predict much improved visible VCSELs will now be possible.
