Abstract:The development of optical interconnects and optical communication has enabled high-speed, energy-efficient and reliable data transmission in supercomputers and communication networks. Nowadays, with the improvement in computer processing speed, higher data transmission rate is required to enhance the overall performance of electronics. Light-emitting transistors (LETs) are attractive optical signal sources because of their inherent dynamic charge transport mechanism in the base terminal. LETs have demonstrated GHz modulation capability, and in order to further improve the emission intensity and spectral purity, resonant cavity is introduced into the LET structure. Resonant cavity light-emitting transistors (RCLETs) have demonstrated up to 68% enhancement in the peak emission intensity and narrower emission peak compared with conventional LETs. The work described in this thesis involves the fabrication process and device characterization of the RCLETs.
