Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The uniformity characteristics of low threshold 1060 nm and high power 850 nm 8×8 individually addressable oxide-confined vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) arrays were presented. The thermal issues of 2-D arrays were considered and high power continuous wave (CW) operation for high power pump laser applications were demonstrated. Results showed 600 mW of CW output power through active cooling of the package.
