      Surface emitting laser, information obtaining apparatus, and imaging apparatus

      The present invention provides a surface emitting laser the wavelength-tunable band of which is wide. The wavelength-tunable surface emitting laser includes a first reflector (101), an active layer (103) disposed on the first reflector (101), a beam portion (110) disposed over the active layer (103) with an air gap therebetween, and a second reflector (120) disposed on the beam portion (110). The second reflector (120) has a distributed Bragg reflector consisting of a stack of dielectric layers. The beam portion (110) has a distributed Bragg reflector consisting of a stack of conductive semiconductor layers.

    4. Surface emitting laser and optical coherence tomography apparatus including the same

      Surface emitting laser and optical coherence tomography apparatus including the same

      A surface emitting laser includes a lower reflector, an active layer, and an upper reflector that are arranged in that order; an air gap provided between the active layer and the upper reflector; and a slab provided on an optical path of the air gap and having a refractive index that is higher than a refractive index of the air gap. A position of at least one of the upper reflector and the lower reflector in an optical axis direction is changed to change a wavelength of emitted light. In the case where the position of the upper reflector is ...
