Infrared Emitter - EMIR

Among different cavity designs for producing infrared microcavity based light emitters, a configuration bringing a strong improvement in terms of optical properties has been found. It relies on a specific etch stop layer used during the fabrication of the microcavity. By using such an etch stop layer optical losses can be minimized and thus optical output power maximized.
