A technique has been developed for cleaving the mirrors of AlGaAs lasers without cleaving the substrate. Micro-cleaving involves cleaving a suspended heterostructure cantilever by ultrasonic vibrations. Lasers with microcleaved mirrors have threshold currents and quantum efficiencies identical to those of similar devices with conventionally cleaved mirrors.
