High-speed 1.55 μm laser diodes with a 3-dB modulation bandwidths of 30 GHz were fabricated by using short-cavity mushroom structures with undoped, strain-compensated InGaAlAs-InGaAsP twenty-quantum-well active regions. The bandwidths were achieved at low bias current of 100 mA. The laser exhibited a high differential gain of 1.54×10/sup -15/ cm2 and a small K factor of 0.135 ns. These results were achieved by using an In/sub 0.386/Ga/sub 0.465/AlAs barrier with 0.83% tensile strain to reduce the thermal emission time of holes from wells and hence the hole transport time.
