Abstract

We report the use of a volume Bragg grating as an output coupler mirror to improve and stabilize the spectral characteristics of 1058-nm vertical-external-cavity surface-emitting laser which is thermally managed using an intracavity diamond heatspreader. Spectrally narrow and locked emission with up to 645mW of TEM0,0 output power is demonstrated
