Many of the growing number of applications of laser diodes are demanding high power diffraction limited sources. For such applications real refractive index guided laser diodes have been used. For the past few years the highest power available commercially from an index guided single mode diode has been 30 mW cw. Recently several manufacturers have introduced single mode diode lasers which emit much higher powers rated reliably at 100 mW.
