Abstract

High-power, continuous-wave operation at red wavelengths has been achieved with a vertical external cavity surface emitting laser based on the GaInP/AlGaInP/GaAs material system. Output power of 0.4W was obtained in a linearly polarized, circularly symmetric, diffraction-limited beam. A birefringent filter inserted in the cavity allowed tuning of the laser output spectrum over a 10nm range around 674nm.
