Abstract:

Fabry-Perot a-SiHa- SiOH microcavities with Er-doped a-SiH active region were fabricated by plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition technique. A metalorganic compound was used to incorporate erbium into the active a-SiH layer. The room temperature transmission, reflection and spontaneous emission spectra of the microcavities with 2 and 3 pairs of layers in distributed Bragg reflectors are measured. An intensity enhancement by two order of magnitude and selective narrowing of the 1.54 micrometer erbium emission line was observed as compared to the case of a single a-SiErH film deposed on a quartz substrate. A theoretical analysis of the experimental data presented is given.
