Paper Abstract

Al-free active-region (ALFA) diode lasers have come of age. Record-high CW and quasi-CW powers have been obtained at (lambda) approximately equals 0.97 micrometer. For wavelengths at and below 0.81 micrometer, ALFA-type lasers are definitely superior to Al-containing -- active lasers. Al-free lasers both open a whole new wavelength range: 0.7 - 0.78 micrometer; for commercial use as well as make possible the easy fabrication of watt-range, coherent diode lasers with stable- beam behavior.
