Advances in Power and Tunability for GaSb-VECSELs

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email

A new fabrication method makes vertical external cavity surface-emitting lasers in the 2.X-µm range possible, combining high output power and precise tunability.

PETER HOLL AND MARCEL RATTUNDE, FRAUNHOFER INSTITUTE FOR APPLIED SOLID STATE PHYSICS

Recently, there has been growing demand for light sources in the near- to mid-infrared range with high output power in combination with good beam quality. This demand is driven by applications such as optical pumping Holmium:YAG lasers or optical parametrical oscillators, as well as satellite communication through the atmosphere and material processing of optically transparent materials. The vertical external cavity surface-emitting laser (VECSEL) fulfills this need and is suitable for numerous applications in the mid-IR range. VECSELs are referred to as semiconductor disk lasers...Read full article
