Paper Abstract

The laser diodes are efficient sources of optical radiation. The maximum optical peak power depends on the pulse duration of the driving current pulse - reducing the pulse duration the safety peak power is increased. The aim of the study is to elaborate a methodology to determine the safety operation area of the high power laser diodes designed for CW operation. Using this methodology, the designer of certain laser devices may exploit the maximum of the laser diode under pulsed operation.
