Paper Abstract

The major types-of AlGaAs laser structures that operate single-mode in cw operation are reviewed. The principles of spatial-mode stabilization are presented. The laser structures are divided into two categories according to their output powers for safe, reliable operation:. low-power (1-7 mW/facet) devices and high-power (15-30 mW/facet) devices. The performances of typical structures are described and experimental results relevant to single-mode operation are displayed. Finally, the devices' dynamic behavior, as related to their use in optical communication systems, is briefly discussed.
