Recent progress in wafer-fused VECSELs emitting in the 1310nm and 1550nm bands, Proc. SPIE, Vol. 8606, pp. 86060F-1-86060F-11, 2013
Recent developments of wafer-fused long-wavelength VECSELs resulted in reaching record high CW output power of 6.6 W at 1300 nm and a coherence length longer than 5 km in fiber and 1 Watt of output power in single frequency regime at 1550 nm. First wafer-fused electrically pumped VECSELs emitting at 1470 nm demonstrate maximum CW output power of 6.5 mW which represents more than 10-times improvement compared with previously published results.
