DBR-free membrane VECSELs, also called MECSELs are a recent development in the field of VECSELs. They offer an alternative set of design parameter controls compared to traditional VECSELs. Here we will report on recent developments of 1 micron membrane VECSELs for CW and mode-locked operation, including achieving >10 W CW output power using a membrane VECSEL mounted on a silicon carbide intra-cavity heat spreader.
