Abstract

In this paper, we demonstrate that highly advantageous thermal management properties of the SiC heatspreader are wholly compatible with direct diode pumping. We investigate the transverse and longitudinal mode behaviour of the high-power vertical external-cavity surface-emitting semiconductor laser with the intra-cavity heatspreader.
