10 March 2016 Broadly tunable DBR-free semiconductor disk laser
Author Affiliations +
We report a DBR-free semiconductor disk lasers centered at 1160 nm with a tuning range of 78 nm, and ongoing effort on our DBR-free SDL centered at 1040 nm. Compared with conventional semiconductor disk lasers, DBR-free SDLs have a broader effective gain bandwidth. In CW operation, 2.5 W output power at 1160 nm and 6 W at 1055 nm were collected from the two lasers without thermal-rollover. Intracavity loss mitigation, currently underway, should improve power scaling and efficiency in these systems.
