The threshold current and its radiative component in 1.5 mu m InAs/InP (311)B quantum dot lasers are measured as a function of the temperature. Despite an almost temperature insensitive radiative current, the threshold current increases steeply with temperature leading to a characteristic temperature T-0 approximate to 55 K around 290 K. Direct observation of spontaneous emission from the wetting layer shows that some leakage from the dots to the wetting layer occurs in these devices. However, a decrease in the threshold current as a function of pressure is also measured suggesting that Auger recombination dominates the nonradiative current and temperature sensitivity of these devices.
