Abstract

High-power single-transverse-mode operation from a vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) is appropriate for numerous applications. However, spatial/spectral hole burning in implanted VCSELs and the strong index guiding inherent to selectively oxidized VCSELs inevitably produce multi-transverse-mode operation. This article reports the first conclusive demonstration of VCSEL antiguiding behavior induced by lateral modifications of the cavity resonance that produce single transverse mode operation to >13 times threshold.
