Abstract

We have demonstrated an optically pumped vertical-external-cavity surface-emitting laser (OP-VECSEL) generating more than 20 W of cw output power in a fundamental transverse mode ( M 2 1.1 ) at 960 nm . The laser is highly efficient with a slope efficiency of 49%, a pump threshold of 4.4 W , and an overall optical-to-optical efficiency of 43%.
