If there is a lattice mismatch a/a between the two materials of a few percent, however, such as in InGaAs/AlGaAs, then the introduction of misﬁt dislocations at the interfaces severely impacts the proper operation of the laser. 6%. , 1991) that usually no defects are generated as long as the well layer is thinner than the so-called critical layer thickness Lz,crit . , 1987). 10 shows schematically the crystal lattice deformation of a well layer with a larger lattice constant sandwiched between barrier layers with smaller lattice constants.
Compound binaries are represented as solid dots and ternaries as solid lines. Dashed lines represent regions of indirect gap. In1−x Gax Asy P1−y (clear region with thick solid lines) and (Alx Ga1−x )y In1−y P (light grey region) are obtained by varying compositions x and y. The two dot–dashed vertical lines show the range of bandgap energies of ternaries and quaternaries that can be grown lattice-matched on the binary substrates GaAs and InP. Some speciﬁc ternaries are depicted. For comparison ZnSe (♦), Si ( ), Ge ( ), and PbS (×) are also shown.
The consequences are the following: ﬁrst, a signiﬁcant gain at a given wavelength can be created by a small number of carriers; and, second, band-ﬁlling effects cause a much smaller spectral shift of the gain curve. The optical properties of QWs are quite different from those in a bulk semiconductor because of the quantized energy levels formed in the well. 9 (a) Simpliﬁed illustration of a single quantum well structure including the density of states functions (solid lines) in the conduction and valence bands and the density of states (dashed curves) in a bulk semiconductor for comparison.
