Based on a combination of high quality materials, advanced design considerations, and focused-ion-beam micromachining, unstable resonator semiconductor lasers (URSLs) have been fabricated in several material systems. GaAs/AlGaAs, InGaAs/GaAs, and GaInP/AlGaInP URSLs fabricated by FIBM have achieved brightness values of 100 to 400 MW/cm2/Sr which is one to two orders of magnitude greater than the brightness of commercial semiconductor lasers produced from the same material systems and with comparable dimensions.
