Optical transverse-mode properties of the GaN-based semiconductor laser-diode is characterized by effective refractive index method. In order to stabilize a transverse-mode in the conventional ridge-waveguide structure, very precise control of ridge-height is found to be necessary. On the contrary, a novel 2-step grown structure with 2-dimensional index guiding has wide feasibility for device parameter, excellent stability of large confinement factor in transverse-mode, and small aspect ratio of beam divergence, under the condition that AlN molar fraction of 0.08 in AlGaN current blocking layer and stripe width of 1.5 µm are used.
