Antiguided arrays (80 micrometers aperture) have demonstrated 0.5 W CW in a diffraction limited beam with reliable operation over several thousand hours. Larger aperture (120 micrometers ) devices have demonstrated 1 W CW in a beam 1.7 X D.L. Due to the parallel nature of the leak-wave coupling, antiguided structures are unique among coupled oscillator systems in that they display temporal stability to high output powers. Preliminary results on aluminum- free InGaP based antiguided structures are 0.5 W pulsed in a D.L. beam from a 40 micron aperture source.
