Comparison of dynamic properties of InP/InAs quantum-dot and quantum-dash lasers

Sadeev, Tagir; Arsenijević, Dejan; Bimberg, Dieter

The dynamic properties of MOVPE grown InP/InAs quantum-dot and quantum-dash lasers, showing identical structural design, emitting in the C-band are investigated and compared to each other. Based on the small-signal measurements, we show the impact of the density of states function on the cut-off frequency, being larger for quantum dots at low currents, and reaching similar values for quantum dashes only at higher currents. The large-signal measurements show error-free data transmission at 22.5 and 17.5 Gbit/s for the quantum-dot and quantum-dash lasers.
