Abstract

Data are presented on a monolithic chip that integrates a quantum well semiconductor laser with a high efficiency light emitting diode (LED), with the LED used to optically pump the laser. The LED operates in the thermoelectrophotonic regime that can produce heat absorption, offering the possibility of heat pump action. The internal optical pumping also offers the possibility of very low internal loss in the laser and the prospect of reaching greater than unity power conversion efficiency in the laser chip. The integrated laser chip is operated and tested under continuous-wave room temperature operation. (C) 2013 American Institute of Physics. [http://dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.4793656]
