GaSb-based single-mode distributed feedback lasers for sensing – Presented by Dr. James Gupta, National Research Council of Canada at the 19th edition European Conference on Integrated Optics, which takes place on 3 – 5 April 2017 at Eindhoven University of Technology, Blauwe Zaal in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
GaSb-based single-mode distributed feedback lasers for sensing.
Single-mode distributed feedback laser diodes were developed for detection of various trace gases in the 2-3.3um range using InGaAsSb/AlGaAsSb heterostructures on GaSb. The first-order lateral index-coupled gratings were defined by electron-beam lithography according to an effective index model. The fabricated lasers exhibit single-mode operation which is tunable through the absorption features of the various target gases by adjustment of the drive current. In addition to the established open-path sensing applications, these devices have great potential for optoelectronic integrated gas sensors, making use of integrated photodetectors and possibly on-chip Si photonics waveguide structures.
