After Y. Matsushima et al. [46]. 48 3. Recent Advances in Semiconductor LaserTechnology for InGaAsP epilayers, stable lattice matching to the substrates is often difficult. 1m. It is very interesting to note that for semiconductor layers below a critical thickness, say, a few nanometers as often used in fabricating quantum-well lasers, the mismatching becomes less critical. In fact, the strain developed as a result of lattice mismatching may even improve laser operation and enhance its lifetime.

But diamond is not a good substrate for making lasers. A technique has been developed to deposit the laser structure first on GaAs substrate and then lift the thin sheet off and redeposit it on diamond [26]. Others use buffer layers to affect the lattice matching [27]. Modulation and Frequency Response of Diode Laser The fact that a laser diode can be so conveniently pumped by current injection makes it easy to modulate the optical power as required for signal transmission. The question is: Can laser modulation follow the signal variation in a synchronous fashion?
