We propose a novel quantum-well (QW) structure for GaInNAs-GaAs lasers that can emit 1.3 μm or longer wavelength light. The idea is insertion of lattice-matched GaInNAs intermediate layers between well and barrier, which is effective for elongating the emission wavelength and reducing well thickness. It is shown that 1.3-μm emission is achievable by using the proposed GaInNAs-GaAs QW with a well thickness thinner than that of conventional rectangular GaInNAs QWs. This structure will relax the design limitation of strained GaInNAs layers.
