12 September 2003 Compact efficient visible lasers based on extended-cavity surface-emitting lasers

We describe the design, fabrication and performance of novel, electrically pumped, vertical compound cavity 976nm InGaAs lasers that emit at 488nm via intracavity second harmonic generation. The resulting light source is an ideal replacement for Ar-ion lasers used in a wide variety of bio-analytical instruments. We present characterization data for the laser to demonstrate its capabilities. Lastly, future directions for the technology are discussed, including a monolithic form and devices operating at 460 and 532nm.
