Low threshold current GaInAsP/InP groove lasers have been fabricated on semi-insulating InP substrates. Three n-type layers are grown with a single liquid phase epitaxial (LPE) growth process, and the p-n junction is formed by a lateral Zn diffusion. The active layer inside the groove provides a real index waveguide. Threshold currents as low as 14 mA with 300 μm cavity length are obtained. A single longitudinal mode at 1.3 μm up to 1.4 I_{TH} is observed. The lasers operate with a single lateral mode when the active region width is less than 2.5 μm. This laser is suitable for monolithic integration with other optoelectronic devices.
