Abstract
The buried heterstructure laser, which possesses highly desirable characteristics such as low threshold current and single lobed output, but is limited to several mW of output by catastrophic optical mirror damage (COMD), has been combined with nonabsorbing facet technology to achieve CW outputs in the 100+ mW region. At high power levels kinkings and far field shifts may occur. An analysis of the laser is performed which indicates techniques for minimizing these effects. The analysis also indicates the possibility of circularizing the far field pattern.
