Paper Abstract

High-power visible laser diodes operating at 630 - 640 nm have been demonstrated. The devices have a GaInP/GaAlInP single quantum well, graded-index separate confinement heterojunction. For 100-micrometers -broadstripe uncoated lasers, pulsed threshold current of 740 A/cm2 and output powers as high as 1.5 W/facet (total 3 W) at room temperature were achieved by optimizing the device cavity length. For 10-micrometers -ridge-waveguide lasers, 40 mW CW output powers with single-longitudinal mode and stable transverse mode have also been demonstrated. We also present, for the first time, high power 635 nm surface-emitting lasers with pulsed output powers of 170 mW.
