Abstract :

High power diode lasers are the key elements in a wide range of applications such as pumping for solid-state lasers and fiber lasers, data transfer and material processing and the devices with high emission power and low far-field divergence are desired for many applications. Bragg reflection waveguide lasers and longitudinal photonic bandgap crystal (LPBC) lasers have been proposed to realize the high brightness diode lasers based on the PBC mechanism. In these devices, light is confined by the photonic band-gap effect in vertical direction rather than by total interface reflection (TIR) and low vertical divergence and circular beams have been demonstrated in single devices. In this paper, we introduce our recent work on the high brightness diode lasers based on the PBC waveguide with lateral microstructure. The one dimensional PBC structure demonstrated the low divergence (<50) in fast-axis, the lateral microstructure showed the evident improvement of beam quality in slow-axis. The high efficiency of directly coupled into fiber was achieved. The high-power PBC lasers were used for external-cavity spectral beam combining (SBC) and the high brightness was demonstrated.
