Paper Abstract

High power multi-mode semiconductor lasers operating between 1 Watt and 2 Watts are widely used for pumping solid-state lasers, active fibers and direct materials processing. In this paper, we present the high power and high temperature performance characteristics of 100 micrometer aperture broad area lasers. In addition, we will present lifetest data that supports mean lifetimes in excess of 500,000 hours for this class of lasers. 1
