Paper Abstract

Application of a broad area laser for a light triggered thyristor valve system was investigated. The maximum light output powers of 1.8 W and 2.7 W were obtained in 80 um wide and 160 um wide laser, respectively. Lasers operated for more than 1000 hours in 100 times accerelated aging condition except for rapidly degraded ones. The rapidly degradation rate consistent with substrate defect dencity.
