Abstract

What we believe to be the first demonstration of an edge-emitting Bragg reflection waveguide laser is reported. The laser utilized InGaAs quantum wells emitting at 980 nm, with AlxGa1xAs core and claddings. The lasing mode is centered in a low-index core with a width of 700 nm, hence providing a large mode volume with strong discrimination against any modes other than the fundamental photonic bandgap mode. Single-transverse mode operation is observed with thresholds as low as 157  A/cm2. The propagation losses of the mode were measured for the first time and found to be 11.4cm1.
