Highly uniform solid-phase Zn-diffusion technique was developed to fabricate transparent windows for 650 nm red laser diodes (LDs). The maximum output power was up to 120 mW, which is three times higher than that for LDs without window structure. The LDs showed excellent thermal characteristics and aging reliability with TO-can package. The characteristic temperature was estimated to be 85 K in the temperature range of 25~65 °C. The LDs showed stable operation of 10 mW at a high temperature of 75 °C. After aging test of 2000 h, the elevated operation current was less than 3%, compared to the initial value. The predicted life time was over 10000 h for 10 mW operation at 75 °C.
In this paper, we present a high power TM Polarized GaAsP laser diode of 808nm wavelength. For high power and narrow beam divergence, an asymmetry broad waveguide structure and a tensile strained GaAsP quantum well were used and the epilayers were grown by low-pressure metalorganic chemical vapor deposition. We have obtained an optical power of 20.86W at 20A without COMD and the vertical farfield of 27°. It is expected that Al-free GaAsP quantum well laser diodes will have good reliability
without any facet treatment.
