Paper Abstract

The design, fabrication, and characteristics of high power 980 nm strained layer lasers will be described in detail. These lnGaAs/GaAs ridge waveguide lasers show excellent optical beam quality with total fundamental mode powers of approximately 200 mW. Cavity losses are less than 3 cm1 , and internal efficiencies approach 1 00%. Single frequency operation is typically observed for these lasers, and side mode suppression ratios of 30 dB and linewidths of 2 MHz are common.
