The technique of ion-induced quantum-well (QW) intermixing using broad area, high energy (2-8 MeV As4+) ion implantation has been studied in a graded-index separate confinement heterostructure InGaAs/GaAs QW laser. This approach offers the prospect of a powerful and relatively simple fabrication technique for integrating optoelectronic devices. Parameters controlling the ion-induced QW intermixing, such as ion doses, fluxes, and energies, post-implantation annealing time, and temperature are investigated and optimized using optical characterization techniques such as photoluminescence, photoluminescence excitation, and absorption spectroscopy.
