Paper Abstract

Performance degradation and lifetimes of high power diode arrays are important issues for laser manufacturers and end users. To fully understand these issues long term testing and failure analysis of arrays is required. To perform this testing we have set up an automated lifetime experiment to examine the characteristics of high power arrays over time. Subsequent material analysis of the arrays will uncover failure mechanisms.
