9 November 2016 830 nm InGaAs quantum well lasers with very low beam divergence
Author Affiliations +
We report on our design and fabrication of 830 nm high power semiconductor lasers with extremely low beam divergence. Here we propose a novel approach in which by combining asymmetric waveguide and a feature called “pins” together, we were able to design an optimized epi structure which not only produces a beam divergence of less than 16°, but also has very good growth tolerance as well. Tested devices show the beam divergence is as small as 13°, yet they still retain very high slope efficiency of around 1.15 W/A and low threshold current of 400 mA for the devices with cavity length being 2 mm long, and ridge width being 40 μm wide.
