Laser diodes based on planar quantum wells produce power conversion efficiencies that tend to saturate at room temperature at ∼ 70%. These planar quantum well laser diodes have been heavily researched and developed and the power conversion efficiencies appear close to the material limits for optimized devices. The power conversion efficiency can be treated as a product of separate efficiencies based...
