Untersuchungen an AlGaInN-basierten Laserdioden im sichtbaren Spektralbereich

Ziel dieser Arbeit war die physikalischen Ursachen des unterschiedlichen Verhaltens grüner Laserdioden im Vergleich zu blauen Bauelementen zu identifizieren. Aus diesem Grund wurden zunächst die elektro-optischen Eigenschaften von blauen und grünen InGaN-basierten Laserdioden mit Hilfe gepulster L-I...
