Author Affiliations +
Two-dimensional diode laser arrays are being developed for near-term application as efficient incoherent high-power pump sources for solid-state lasers and for uses in the long term as coherent primary sources. A technique for fabricating such arrays has been demonstrated which makes use of small deflecting mirrors integrated with diode laser elements that are formed on a semiconductor wafer surface by lithographic techniques. Monolithic arrays of over 100 elements have been fabricated with good uniformity and a power density over 40 W/cm2 of wafer area.
