Cathodoluminescence is applied for evaluation of in-depth and in-plane variations of light emission from two types of GaN-based laser diode structures. We evaluate in-depth properties of the laser diode emission and demonstrate that potential fluctuations still affect emission of laser diodes for e-beam currents above thresholds for a stimulated emission.
