Paper Abstract

Considerable progress has been made in the technology of producing laser diode arrays for pumping of solid state lasers. Monolithic linear CW arrays with powers of more than 5 watts have been produced and used to pump rod geometry lasers. Area arrays with pulsed power densities of more than 2.5 kilowatts per square centimeter, have been demonstrated. By carefully designing and packaging the array, the same basic diode structure can be used to produce both types of arrays.
