Paper Abstract

Thin-p-clad, 0.97 micrometers -emitting lasers with 2nd-order Au/air gratings and asymmetrically facet-coated, surface emit in a diffraction-limited (0.11 degree(s)) lobe, in agreement with theory. Then, symmetrically AR-coated surface-emitting devices with central phase shifts >= (lambda) /4 are found to lase in an orthonormal single lobe with good efficiency and near-field uniformity. The best solution is to use surface emitters with central phase shift and DBR end mirrors: external differential quantum efficiencies of 60 - 70% are obtained over wide ranges (120 - 160 degree(s)C) in central-phaseshift value.
