Paper Abstract

A new era of ever increasing optical output power, efficiency, and reliability has been achieved for GaAlAs quantum well lasers over the past several years. Beginning in 1982 quantum well laser diode arrays were demonstrated to be capable of achieving CW room temperature operation" Since that time higher output powers, higher efficiency, and greater reliability lasers have been demonstrated.
