Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


The optical gain spectra for interdiffused GaxIn1-xN0.04 As0.96/ GaAs single quantum wells are studied theoretically using the Fick's Law and Fermi Golden Rule. Due to quantum well interdiffusion, the peak gain and the shift of the gain peaks vary with the diffusion lengths. Our results show that interdiffusion technique can be used to tune the operating wavelength for multi-wavelength applications without degradation of device performance.
