We evaluated saturation energies and absorption recovery time dependent on reverse-bias voltage for a waveguide-coupled GaInN multiquantum well saturable absorber in a bisectional laser structure. When the applied reverse-bias was increased from 5 to 20 V, the saturation energy at 405 nm monotonically increased from 5 to 14 pJ; the linear absorption coefficient at 405 nm showed the same dependence. These dependences are different from those observed in an AlGaAs multiquantum well. The absorption recovery time was shortened to 3 ps when a highly reverse-bias voltage of 20 V was applied.
