Paper Abstract

The catastrophic degradation of high power lasers depends on both external factors, associated with the technological processes followed to fabricate the laser, and also on intrinsic aspects related to the materials forming the laser structure, more specifically the active zone composed by the QW, guide layers and claddings. The materials properties: optical, thermal and mechanical, play a paramount role in the degradation of the laser. We analyse here how these properties have an impact on the mechanisms responsible for the catastrophic degradation.
