Abstract

The spontaneous-emission factor in an unstable-resonator semiconductor laser is enhanced by more than 2 orders of magnitude compared with that of a Fabry–Perot semiconductor laser having the same volume. A clear linkage has been observed among the spontaneous-emission factor, the waveguiding property, and the width of the lasing spectral envelope.
