Abstract

Double quantum-well lasers have been fabricated with an integrated low-loss waveguide in which the quantum wells have been intermixed by neutral impurity disordering. Threshold currents of devices with integrated 600- mu m passive guides show an increase of less than 10% over normal Fabry-Perot lasers of the same active length, confirming that the propagation loss in the passive wavelength is significantly reduced by disordering to 4.5+or-2 cm/sup -1/. Comparison with unimplanted devices suggests that the implanted dopant also passivates the waveguide electrically.
