Abstract

Normal diode lasers with average output powers of 1 W or more exhibit bad beam quality and therefore cannot be applied for high-precision applications or nonlinear optics. Therefore an external output coupling mirror was used in our experiments. Diffraction-limited operation was achieved, which yielded 400 mW of power and a factor-of-12 improvement in brightness. With this resonator type 1.1 W of average output power was also obtained, with a beam propagation factor of 2.6 in the slow axis; fast axis emission is always diffraction limited.
