Abstract

A high-power dual-wavelength AlGaInAs / GaAs laser operating in a vertical external-cavity surface emitting geometry, grown by molecular beam epitaxy, is reported. The active regions of the laser are separated by an optical long-wave-pass filter to prevent absorption of short-wavelength radiation in the long-wavelength gain area. The maximum output power achieved at 15 °C was 0.75 W at λ ≈ 966 nm and 1.38 W at λ ≈ 1047 nm for the pump power of 21.2 W.
