Paper Abstract

The facet heating of GaAlAs/GaAs DQW high power laser diodes is one of the main processes for fast degradation and catastrophical optical damage in the near of the laser mirrors. This local heating is caused by nonradiative recombination of the injected carriers and by optical absorption near the cleaved or coated facets. The Stokes and anti-Stokes lines have been measured by excitation with an Ar+ ion laser by high local resolution of about approximately 1 micrometer and an accuracy of the beam position of approximately 0.5 micrometer. The facet temperature is calculated from the ratio of Stokes and anti-Stokes intensity. Lateral and transversal temperatures distribution at the facet of multistripe arrays and the temperature as a function of injection current have been studied. The influence of different mechanisms on the accuracy of the obtained temperatures is discussed.
