AbstractWe study the enhanced inhomogeneity across the InAs quantum-dash (Qdash) layers by incorporating a chirped AlGaInAs barrier thickness in the InAs/InP laser structure. The lasing operation is investigated via Fabry-Pérot ridge-waveguide laser characterization, which shows a peculiar behavior under quasi-continuous-wave (QCW) operation. Continuous energy transfer between different dash ensembles initiated quenching of lasing action among certain dash groups, causing a reduced intensity gap in the lasing spectra. We discuss these characteristics in terms of the quasi-zero-dimensional density of states (DOS) of dashes and the active region inhomogeneity. © 2009-2012 IEEE.
