Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


A technique which enabled measurement of TE and TM polarised true spontaneous emission spectra of GaInP tensile strained devices, as a function of quasi-fermi level separation was presented. The technique allowed assessment of the affect of strain on significant recombination pathways within the device for a given value of gain requirement. The method, which consisted of collecting the facet emission from a multi-contact device, determined the modal gain and optical loss.
