This paper reports the improvements and limitations of MBE grown 1.3μm GaAsSb/GaAs single QW lasers. At room temperature, the devices show a low threshold current density (Jth) of 253 Acm-2, a transparent current density of 98 Acm-2, an internal quantum efficiency of 71%, an optical loss of 18 cm-1 and a characteristic temperature (T0) = 51K. The defect related recombination in these devices is negligible and the primary non-radiative current path has a stronger dependence on the carrier density than the radiative current contributing to ~84% of the threshold current at RT. From high hydrostatic pressure dependent measurements, a slight decrease followed by the strong increase in threshold current with pressure is observed, suggesting that the device performance is limited to both Auger recombination and carrier leakage.
