After T. P. Lee [59],with permission. This is the normal condition of multimode laser operation where the laser cavity length L is long, several hundred times the optical wavelength. Notice that at higher currents, more power is concentrated to the zeroth-order mode. If the envelope of these spectra is drawn, a resonance-like curve is obtained. The spectral width of the laser oscillation is defined as the half-width of the resulting curve. Sideband wavelengths are separated from each other by approximately 1 nm and decreases in amplitude as they move away from the center wavelength.

1986. IEEE. Distributed Feedbackand Distributed Bragg Reflection Lasers 51 the temperature dependence. It has been shown that the optical gain of GaAiAs/InP quantum-well structures at the same injection carrier density (N = 3 X 10I8/cm 3 ) increases to approximately 2 times (QF), 4 times (QW), and 16 times (QB) that of a bulk medium. The original quantum-well structure is called quantum face (QF) here. Fabrication of QW and QB lasers is difficult as the demand for semiconductor material of fine size on the order of 10 nm cannot be met easily at present.

But to minimize its threshold current density, we must optimize the number of quantum wells in a MQW [35]. 1m wavelength regions progressively in recent years [36-40]. 5 urn, output powers of 190 mW [41] and narrow linewidths of 250 kHz at 4 mW [42] have been obtained. Linewidth is a problem that needs to be addressed in single-frequency lasers. Linewidth broadening is the result of change in lasing frequency with optical gain caused by changes in the index of refraction when spontaneous emission is present.
