Beam Shaping Concepts for kW-class CW and QCW Diode Lasers - Photonics West 2016

In modern diode lasers beam shaping of the highly asymmetric laser beam, which exits the front facet of the semiconductor laser material, is a crucial step towards cost efficient high brightness laser modules which in turn can be further combined towards kW-class diode lasers and can be efficiently fiber coupled. In order to scale up the power of a single laser module in an economic way, high fill factor laser bars are employed.
