Abstract
Diode lasers and arrays are the most promising coherent sources for wide scale applications such as fiber-optic communications and optical pumping of other lasers. Many sophisticated fabrication techniques have been realized to produce diode lasers providing an output beam with a narrow, single-lobe far-field pattern. Our proposal consists in modifying the output facet properties of a common commer-cial diode laser to improve the optical quality of the beam. Numerical simulations was performed to predict the effects of replacing the standard output facet by a spatially varying reflectivity facet, a phase-conjugate and a spherical facet.
