This program concentrated on developing techniques to better understand and fabricate quantum-confined structures. The goal was to create the enabling technology for more efficient semiconductor lasers and integrated optoelectronic circuits. Over the contract period, significant advances occurred in the development of quantum-confined lasers, UHV in-situ processing technology, and the underlying theory for quantum-confined laser structures. The quantum confined laser work included both quantum-wire laser and vertical-cavity laser development. This latter effort also required substantial improvements in the MBE growth technology. Much of this technology is now ready for transfer to industry. In fact, a number of joint projects with industry are underway, as a result of this program.
- Lasers and Masers
- Electrooptical and Optoelectronic Devices
