Paper Abstract

The phase front deviations present in the output radiation patterns of a variety of AlGaAs diode lasers has been experimentally determined in order to assess their utility as optical sources in diffraction-limited applications. Experimental interferometric characterizations have shown that the output of index-guided devices have smaller aberrations than do gain-guided laser structures.
