Abstract

We report a high-power (AlGaIn)(AsSb) semiconductor disk laser emitting around 2 μ m . With a diamond heat spreader used for thermal management, a maximum output power of just over 5 W and slope efficiencies of over 25% were demonstrated. The output wavelength was tunable over an 80 nm range centered at 1.98 μ m . The beam propagation parameter ( M 2 ) was measured to be in the range of 1.1 to 1.4 for output powers up to 3 W .
