There is presently much interest in fabdating semiconductor injection lasers, such as GaAs/GaAlAs lasers, that couple radiation from the active region of the laser into an adjacent transparent waveguide layer. Some of the reasons are to permit ease of radiation coupling in optical integrated circuits, to permit radiation to spread and minimize divergence and to reduce mirror damage, as in the case of a passive mirror laser disclosed in Xerox Disclosure Journal, Volume 4, Number 5, September/October 1979.
