Abstract
Bars with high and low filling factors serve the different schemes for beam transformation and fiber coupling. We report on highly efficient 8xx bars for operation in excess of 100 W and reliable broad-area single-emitter lasers (BASE) with 90 um aperture being capable to deliver in excess of 10 W from a 105 um core fiber. For 9xx bars we present solutions with power levels per device ranging from 60 W to 300 W corresponding to linear power levels beyond 8.5 W per 100 um stripe width indicating convergence of BAR and BASE devices. Life test results for these devices will be shown and high brightness fiber coupled solutions will be discussed.
