    Abstract: Methods and structures for forming vertical-cavity light-emitting devices are described. An n-side or bottom-side layer may be laterally etched to form a porous semiconductor region and converted to a porous oxide. The porous oxide can provide a current-blocking and guiding layer that aids in directing bias current through an active area of the light-emitting device. Distributed Bragg reflectors may be fabricated on both sides of the active region to form a vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser. The light-emitting devices may be formed from III-nitride materials.

  • Patent number: 10833740
    Abstract: A communication device has multiple antennas in an antenna array, and applies the same input power to each antenna. A controller of the communication device instructs phase shifters to form a first subarray with a first pair of the antennas and a second subarray with a second pair of the antennas. The controller causes the first subarray to generate a first beam and causes the second subarray to generate a second beam, wherein the first beam combines in phase with the second beam to generate a coarse beam. The coarse beam may have increased beam width while exhibiting decreased peak gain loss.
