A double heterostructure InGaAsP/InP mesa laser and a mass transport laser were integrated vertically with an InGaAsP/InP double heterojunction bipolar transistor, resulting in the first realization of laser operation in a vertical integration. Laser thresholds as low as 17 mA and an output laser power of over 30 mW were observed. A new type of bistable laser and electro-optical switching were demonstrated.
