Abstract

The development of low-cost, compact, high-power and broadband superluminescent light-emitting diodes is an important research subject for a wide range of applications. We describe how self-assembled quantum-dot structures can provide an efficient means of realizing such devices utilizing a number of their unique physical properties. Such quantum dot superluminescent diodes are leading to a revolution in the development of broadband emitters for widespread medical, biological and telecommunications applications.
