Abstract
A ten element piston micromirror array has been used to produce a single irradiation spot in the far-field of a ten element laser diode array operating in the fundamental out- of-phase supermode and to steer the far-field irradiance pattern. A strong single lobe was obtained for several different laser injection currents. The produced lobe with full width at half maximum of 0.167 degree(s) was narrower than the original far-field lobes. Steering of the single lobe to 12 separate spots over a 0.807 degree(s) range was demonstrated.
