Jung Han, et al. Development of Blue Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) with Nanoporous GaN. 239th ECS Meeting with the 18th International Meeting on Chemical Sensors. 2021, (Invited)

ABSTRACT Blue and green vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs) are expected to be used in future generation display and lighting applications. Applications in virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), retinal scanning display (RSD), and portable projection devices are only a few of the anticipated applications. However, in spite of vigorous pursuit for more than […]

Elafandy RT, et al. Room-temperature operation of c-plane GaN vertical cavity surface emitting laser on conductive nanoporous distributed Bragg reflector, Applied Physics Letters 2020, 117 (1) 011101.

ABSTRACT Technological feasibility of III-nitride vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) has been hindered by the lack of an electrically conductive, easily manufacturable, wide reflection stop band distributed Bragg reflector (DBR). Here, we present the first electrically injected III-nitride VCSEL on an electrically conductive DBR using nanoporous (NP) GaN. The measured threshold current density and […]

ABSTRACT III-Nitride vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) have attracted much attention during the last two decades. Control of the laser polarization in VCSELs is one of the main challenges that needs to be addressed for real applications. In this work a novel polarization locking technique for GaN VCSELs is presented by employing birefringent nanoporous distributed Bragg […]
