Paper Abstract

We describe design, fabrication and performance of novel, electrically pumped, vertical compound cavity InGaAs lasers emitting at 980 and 920 nm. The concept is scalable and has been demonstrated using monolithic low power (~10 mW) devices all the way to high power extended cavity devices which have demonstrated 1 W cw multi-mode and 0.5 W cw in a TEM00 mode and a single frequency, with 90% coupling efficiency into a single-mode fiber. We also describe uncooled vertical compound cavity lasers in TO-56 can packages which produce 50-100 mW of fiber coupled power. Finally, recent developments in intracavity frequency doubling are summarized.
