Paper Abstract

The degradation mechanisms of laser diodes are studied. It is shown that the reliability of the SDL-5410 and the SDL-2441 result in projected lifetimes of greater than 60,000 at 25 C and 200,000 at 15 C, respectively. The high maximum output power protects the laser from optically induced degradation; residual degradation is due to thermally- or field-induced recombination centers.
