Abstract
Laser diode for DRAW optical disk systems has to have not only high power characteristics (writing) but also low noise characteristics (reading) at low power. However, few of so-called "high power lasers" have low noise. In this paper, we present a new high power low noise laser, which can be volume produced at low cost. The laser have wavelength of 780nm, power output of 25mW (50% duty cycle), and high S/N ratio of 90dB (f=20kHz, BW=300Hz, opt-ical feedback ratio < 1%) at 3mW CW. In addition, it has a lifetime enough to write an optical disk for 50,000 hours.
