We report recent results in high power visible diode lasers operating in both the 680 nm band and the 630 nm band. Continuous wave (CW) output powers in excess of 1 W from a 100 p.m aperture and 8.5Wfrom a monolithic 8 mm bar have been obtained in the 680 nm band. At 633 nm, 900 mW have been measured from a 100 jim wide aperture and 3 W from a 1 cm bar. We also discuss the temperature and length dependence of the threshold current density and external efficiency.
