Oxide confinement and high contrast grating mirrors for Mid-infrared VCSELs

Abstract : A new mid-infrared (MIR) Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) structure is proposed. We have integrated to the VCSEL structure both an oxide aperture for lateral confinement, and a sub-wavelength high-contrast-grating top mirror. Upon the GaSb-based half-VCSEL, we have grown a metamorphic AlGaAs heterostructure to enable thermal oxidation and grating mirror fabrication steps. A methodology based on optimization and anti-optimization methods has been used to design the optical grating, with improved parameter tolerances regarding processing errors. Finally, we show the complete fabrication of an electrically-pumped MIR monolithic VCSEL structure implementing both oxide confinement and a subwavelength grating top mirror.
