We present the design parameter variations of multi quantum wells (MQW) in the active region of an InP-based vertical-cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) utilizing an air-post design, The MQW and barrier thickness were varied and their effect on the device threshold current, gain and lattice temperature were analysed and presented.
