Abstract
Beam quality is very important in laser technology and its application. In practice a good beam quality evaluating method can indicate which beam is good and which laser is suitable. Therefore evaluating beam quality is of huge significance. Because the beam of laser diode has many characteristics differ from other lasers, such as the angle of the beam is too big, and the angle in the direction parallel to the junction plane disagrees with it in the perpendicular direction, a new quality parameter Q(θ,ω,d) for evaluating beam quality of laser diode is given. The difficulty of collimation is well expressed by use of Q. The smaller the value of Q is, the more easily the beam is collimated.
