Abstract

In the presented work, an optical approach of stress determining in metalorganic vapor phase epitaxy (MOVPE) grown quantum cascade laser (QCL) structures was reported. In the case of such sophisticated structures containing hundreds of thin layers, it is important to minimize the stress generated in the QCL core. Techniques enabling determination of stress in such thin layers as those described in the article are photoluminescence and Raman spectroscopies. Based on Raman shift or changes in photoluminescence signal, it is possible to analyze stress occurring in the structure.
