Paper Abstract

The method of mounting laser diodes between thin metal plates for more efficient heat sinking is discussed. The principles involved in making the double-sided heat sink ope rate over a large temperature range without stressing the laser diode are explained. Double-sided heat sink diodes both single heterostructure and stripe geometry double heterostructure configuration can be operated at higher average power output, higher duty factor, and greater efficiency than with a standard single heat sink.
