Abstract

The recent demonstration of the GeSn laser opened a promising route towards the monolithic integration of light sources on the Si platform. A GeSn laser with higher Sn content is highly desirable to enhance the emission efficiency and to cover longer wavelength. This Letter reports optically pumped edge-emitting GeSn lasers operating at 3 μm, whose device structure featured Sn compositionally graded with a maximum Sn content of 22.3%. By using a 1950-nm laser pumping in comparison with a 1064-nm pumping, the local heating and quantum defect were effectively reduced, which improved laser performance in terms of higher maximum lasing temperature and lower threshold.
