With the aim to improve the state-of-the-art performances of vertical-cavity based devices, in order to enlarge their functionalities, and to further extend the capabilities in the AlGaAs material system, the remaining technological limitations for this kind of devices have to be overcome.

In this way, the non-uniformity of the carrier injection and the difficulty in precisely controlling the shape and the size of the active region from AlOx apertures (formed by lateral selective oxidation of an AlAs buried layer) is addressed.

In this aim, the inventor has developed a novel technological process of planar oxidation (PAlOx) which enables a very flexible way to structure transversally the refractive indices in the area surrounding the active region.

The innovating technique allows addressing separately the electrical and optical operating aspects of these optoelectronic devices, thus leading to the growth for novel structures with controlled transverse optical behaviour and spatially mastered electrical injection.

The main breakthrough of the invention is to maintain a planar technology through the fabrication of oxide-confined devices, with increased possibilities of the variety of oxide aperture shapes and improved accuracy of the dimensions in a reduced process time.


This innovation is dedicated to VCSELs market but also waveguide, AsGa devices and LEDs.
