We present recent advances in high power semiconductor laser bars and arrays at wavelengths from the near infrared to the eye-safe regime including increased spectral brightness with internal gratings to narrow and stabilize the spectrum, increased spatial brightness with multimode and high power single mode performance, and reduced cost architectures from high power surface emitting 2-dimensional arrays. These devices have the potential to dramatically improve diode pumped systems and enable new direct diode applications.
