Two-dimensional quantum confinement in quantum-wire (QWR) semiconductor lasers is expected to yield improved static and dynamic performance compared to conventional quantum-well (QW) lasers.1,2 The improved features include very low threshold currents (in the microampere regime), reduced temperature sensitivity, higher modulation bandwidth, and narrower spectral linewidth.
