Abstract
Thermal control of the volume Bragg grating (VBG) in the LD with the external cavity is critical for the tuning of the wavelength and the narrowing of the bandwidth. Based on finite element theories, thermal properties of the VBG were researched under different conditions of LD illumining area, laser power, gratings’ working temperature and heat convection. Both the VBGs in the external cavity of LD bar and LD stack were considered in the experiments. The results show that higher working temperature of the VBG and adopting better heating convection cooling methods is beneficial to realize the uniformity of the VBG temperature distribution.
