abstract

  • A gain flattening coating was designed and fabricated to enhance the wavelength tuning for asymmetric multiple quantum well (AMQW) lasers. After coating, a nonlasing gap in the middle range of the lasing wavelengths, which might exist for AMQW lasers that are operated without an external cavity, was overcome and the total lasing range was increased. With the coating, the tuning range of an AMQW laser, as measured without an external cavity, was increased to 85 nm from 70 nm.
