Paper Abstract

The optically pumped semiconductor thin-disk laser with external-cavity (OPS-TDL) is a new type of semiconductor laser structure with the capability of achieving high output power while retaining good beam quality. We demonstrate the first AlGaInP-based red light emitting OPS-TDL structure. The device has been pumped optically with an argon-laser at 514~nm. The device has an epitaxial backside mirror and a multiple quantum well active region, consisting of strained InGaP quantum wells arranged in several groups as a periodic gain structure. A peak single-mode output power of more than 200mW at 660nm has been obtained in pulsed operation. Various designs for the active layer have been investigated.
