Lasers With Distributed Loss Have Sublinear Power Output Conference Paper uri icon


  • We provide a simple explanation for why laser media with distributed loss should have a sublinear output power characteristic. This understanding clarifies the role of long-range spatial hole burning in reducing the efficiency of semiconductor lasers, and is essential for optimizing power output. © OSA 2015.
