Paper Abstract

Reliable high-power GaInP/AlGaInP laser diodes with a maximum continuous wave (cw) output power of 2.1 W in the 690 nm band have been realized. The laser has a 100 micrometers - wide single stripe and an optimized separate-confinement heterostructure with a compressively strained multiple quantum well active region. The laser operated at a cw output power of 500 mW for 350 h at 20 degree(s)C with only a few percent increase in operating current.
