Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The use of these quantum dot structures are now being incorporated within vertical cavity surface emitting lasers which will provide a gain medium whose wavelength is linked to the cavity mode over an extremely wide temperature range. This overcomes gain de-tuning which is a major limitation within vertical cavity devices.
