Paper Abstract

We present a novel compact laser device based on a semiconductor master-oscillator power-amplifier (MOPA) emitting at 772 nm, suitable for quantum optic and spectroscopy. The optical performance of the laser device is characterized. For miniaturized lasers the thermal management is challenging, we therefore perform thermal simulations and measurements.

The first demonstrator is emitting more than 3 W optical power with a linewidth below 2lMHz. Using this MOPA design also compact devices for quantum optics (e.g. rubidium atomic clock) and seed lasers for frequency conversion can be realized [1].
