    Abstract: In this paper, the authors propose an integrated design of an in-plane optically-pumped edge-emitting ridge-waveguide semiconductor laser, without any bulk components. The optical pump radiation is transferred to the active region of the laser through coupling from the adjacent transparent waveguide. The laser device is based on In1-xGaxAsyP1-y/InP... Show More
