Abstract

Two separate laser diodes emitting near 980 nm were coupled by a thick volume Bragg grating recorded in a photothermorefractive glass. The coupled diodes emitted at the same wavelength with a spectral width narrowed to below the resolution of the spectrum analyzer ( < 30 pm ) . Coherent emission at a pumping level greater than five times above the threshold was observed for several months with near-unity visibility of the interference pattern.
