Abstract

Buried heterostructure lasers are analyzed in terms of modegain using the effective index method. Useful combinations of active region width and composition of the bounding layers are found by requiring low threshold current density, fundamental mode operation, and allowing a 10% tolerance on the active layer thickness.
