We have measured photoluminescence (PL) of epitaxial wafers with an InGaAs/AlGaAs strained-quantum well structure (s-QW) for 1.02-1.06-μm wavelength semiconductor laser under irradiation of a high-power laser diodes (LDs) emitting at around 920 nm. The s-QW layer can be selectively excited by the 920-nm-LD through GaAs and AlGaAs layers. We observed the PL spectra clearly from 1.0 μm by using a thin Si-plate as a cut filter to reduce the scattered light from the 920-nm-LD. When we excite from the cleaved facet side, the obtained PL data have good correlation with characteristics of the laser diode having the same s-QW active layer. By using developed method we can expect laser characteristics before its fabrication.
