Abstract

A semianalytical evaluation of laser-beam-induced thermal deformation of III–V semiconductor-based saturable Bragg reflectors is presented. The thermally induced bowing and resulting optical aberrations for different incident laser spot sizes and saturable Bragg reflector dimensions are calculated. Also discussed are the effects of the major physical and optical SESAM and laser parameters.
