ABSTRACT
A study of the spatially resolved spectrum of individual emitters in a Y-junction laser array shows that the array is not completely locked. The use of an external cavity with a novel, customized spatial filter is demonstrated to yield a stable output beam, which increases from 1.25 times the diffraction limit at low power to 1.6 times the diffraction limit at 120 mW without shifting.

    Saturation of the junction voltage in GaN-based laser diodes (LDs) is studied. It is found that there is a bump above the lasing transition in the I(dV/dI)-I curve, instead of a dip as that for GaAs-based LDs. The bump in I(dV/dI)-I curve moves to higher currents along with the lasing threshold....
