Paper Abstract

The brief review of the modern state of the problem is given. Experimental results on CW lasers with total efficiency 50 percent and QCW 2D arrays with power density 1 kW/cm2 are presented. The reasons of the output power limitations are considered. The numerical model of thermal regimes at QCW and CW operations and the model of total efficiency were used in respect of laser resonator and array design optimization. The nearest prospects of diode laser performance improvement are discussed.
