Reliable RT CW operation of GaInAsP/InP multiple-quantum-wire lasers fabricated by dry etching and regrowth method

A RT-CW operation of GaInAsP/InP 5-stacked quantum-wire lasers (23 nm wide) fabricated by EB lithography, CH/sub 4//H/sub 2/-RIE and OMVPE regrowth was achieved. No significant changes in performance were observable even after 7100 h under the RT-CW condition.
