Abstract

Phase-locked diode laser arrays have been studied intensively for their potential as high power optical sources •• •>. Most of the laser designs that have been reported suffer from poor beam quality, beam broadening or steering with increasing drive current. On the other hand, laser arrays in external cavity configurations offer an alternative solution to achieve high power in a diffraction-iimited beam.
