Device proposal, theoretical analysis and experimental work were performed on various monolithic integrated optic devices using grating components and quantum-well lasers. The obtained results are summarized as follows.
1 Theoretical analysis of grating components for integration was performed to establish the design technology.
2 Design technology was established on a distributed Bragg reflector Laser consisting of a active ridge channel and curved gratings as an laser oscillator for integration.
3 Theoretical analysis of tapered power amplifier for intgegration. Optimum design and theoretical performances ware clarified through dynamic wavefront analysis based on the beam propagation method.
4 A Gaussian-mode laser oscillator using curved deep-groove Bragg reflector was proposed and fabricated. Lasing at 10mA threshold was accomplished.
5 A distributed Bragg reflector laser with grating coupler for vertical spherical-wave emission was proposed and fabricated. Operation of CW 2.2mW spherical wave emission was demonstrated.
6 An integrated high-power laser emitting a collimated beam consisting of a distributed Bragg reflector laser oscillator, a taped power amplifier and a grating coupler was designed and fabricated. Stable single-mode oscillation, diffraction-limited collimation and coupled power as high as 183mW were demonstrated.
7 An integrated lensless external-cavity tunable semiconductor laser was proposed and fabricated. CW 84mW output power, diffraction-limited beam and 21.5nm tuning range were accomplished.
8 Selective disordering of quantum wall was studied as a technique to reduce passive waveguide losses. A method using bithickness SiO_2 film and rapid thermal annealing was developed, and remarkable loss reduction was accomplished.
9 The above technique was applied to a distributed Bragg reflector laser. Remarkable threshold reduction (3.5mA), output power enhancement (60mW) and side mode suppression ratio were accomplished.
