Paper Abstract

The intended fiber-optic applications for both short- and long-wavelength single-mode diode lasers are discussed. Major types of single-mode devices are grouped and described in two sections: low-power (3-7 mW/facet) lasers and high-power (10-40 mW/facet) lasers. The low-power laser section contains principles of mode stabilization, and a treatment in parallel of AlGaAs and InGaAsP buried-mesa, non-planar-substrate and laterally-lossy devices. The high-power laser section contains the various means of achieving high-power reliable single-mode operation and a description and comparison of major types of high-power AlGaAs devices. Emphasis is placed on the performance of the constricted double-heterojunction large-optical-cavity (CDH-LOC) laser. A brief discussion of single-mode stabilization and device dynamic behavior is also presented.
