The fabrication of very-small-aperture lasers is demonstrated, and their performance is analyzed. Becausec of strong optical feedback caused by a gold film on the front facet of the laser, its behavior changes: The threshold current decreases, the density of light inside the laser diode and the redshift effect of the spectra are enhanced, and the laser diode’s lifetime is shorter than that of common laser diodes with large driving current. © 2005 Optical Society of America.
