Abstract

In this letter we report a new design for surface emitting semiconductor lasers operating at 940 nm, incorporating a double-flare cavity, and distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) mirrors also providing surface emission. This design can take advantage of the modal behavior of the unstable resonator, and has shown very good mode control, with coherent emission from two facets in the same direction. We report preliminary performance results showing very promising characteristics including single-mode diffraction limited operation, and spectral behavior with 42 dB side-mode suppression. This design has exhibited promising results for increasing the current range between the lasing threshold and the filament threshold.
