The spatiotemporal dynamics of linearly and trumpet flared high brightness semiconductor lasers are compared and contrasted using a comprehensive model built up from the microscopic physics. While both devices display complex multi longitudinal mode dynamics, the trumpet flared device is less susceptible to transverse filamentation instabilities and, hence, displays superior time-averaged far-field imaging properties.
