In order to increase the superluminescent power effectively and satisfy the need for wide uses, a novel idea about monolithic integration of superluminescent diode with the tapered semiconductor amplifier has been suggested. The device was fabricated by using an AlGaAs SQW heterostructure wafer and gain-guide oxide-stripe structures. The experimental results show that the integrated superluminescent device can increase the out power notably. The device will become a new type of superluminescent source.
