Abstract

Using a triple-layer antireflection coating of Al2O3, Si, and SiO2, we have achieved a minimum facet reflectivity of 1 × 10−6 and a bandwidth of 90 nm for a reflectivity of 5 × 10−5 or less for 1550-nm center-wavelength InGaAsP semiconductor lasers. A facet reflectivity of 3 × 10−6 and a bandwidth of 30 nm for a reflectivity of 5 × 10−5 were achieved for 1310-nm InGaAsP lasers. This coating is applicable to broadband external-cavity-tuned laser sources, edge-emitting light-emitting diodes, and semiconductor laser amplifiers.

Fig. 4
Fig. 4

Histogram of the measured laser facet reflectivity for a series of 28 coating runs of 1550-nm lasers and 18 coating runs of 1310-nm lasers. The reflectivity result graphed for each 1550-nm coating run is the average of the reflectivity at 1550-nm of each measured laser in that run. For the 1310-nm runs the average was measured at 1310 nm.
