We have measured gain spectra for TE polarization in a GaInAsP/InP laser as a function of dc bias current below laser threshold. The measurements were made on a low-threshold device with a stripe geometry defined by proton bombardment. A number of other characteristics of this and similar devices from the same wafer are also reported. These data permit the maximum gain coefficient of the active layer gmaxto be evaluated as a function of nominal current density Jnom. We obtain the linear relationship g_{\max } = (3.1 \times 10^{-2}/\eta_{r})(J_{nom} - \eta_{r} 5.4 \times 10^{3}) , where ηris the radiative quantum efficiency. Our data apply only for large gain ( g g\sim 150 cm-1) and large Jnombecause the active layer of the test device is thin (0.1 μm).
