We assess the relative merits and prospects of using diffused quantum-well (QW) structures in semiconductor lasers. First, different techniques to achieve interdiffusion are analyzed and compared. Second, recent development of semiconductor lasers using interdiffusion technique is also discussed. Third, the optical properties of diffused QW's are studied. In addition, novel design of diffused QW's structures to maintain stable single-mode operation in semiconductor lasers is proposed. Finally, brief discussion and conclusion are given.
