We report metalorganic chemical vapor deposition-grown double heterostructure and multiple quantum well InAsSb/InAsSbP laser diodes emitting at 3 to 4 μm and light emitting diodes up to 5 μm. Maximum output power up to 1 W (from two facets) with differential efficiency above 70 % up to 150 K was obtained from a MQW laser with stripe width of 100 μm and cavity length of 700 μm for emitting wavelength of 3.6 μm at 90 K. Maximum operating temperature up to 220 K with threshold current density of 40 A/cm2 at 78 K were achieved from the double-heterostructure lasers emitting at 3.2 μm. The far-field beam divergence as narrow as 24° was achieved with the use of higher energy gap barrier layers, i.e., lower effective refractive index, in MQW active region. We also discuss the effect of composition-fluctuation in the InAsSb active region on the gain and threshold current of the lasers.
