Paper Abstract

We demonstrate 940nm diode lasers with more than 100W QCW output power having an aperture width 5 to 10 times smaller than commonly used 10mm bars. We used a super-large vertical waveguide structure to reduce the facet load. The waveguide design results in a very small vertical divergence of only 14° FWHM (24° including 95% of power). The threshold current of a device with 1mm wide aperture is about 8A and the slope efficiency is above 70%. The lateral far field width is below 10°, including 95% of power, and the wall plug efficiency is around 50% at 100W output power.
