We designed a V-shape external Talbot cavity for a broad-area laser diode array and demonstrated coherent laser beam combining at high power with narrow spectral linewidth. The V-shape external Talbot cavity provides good mode-discrimination and does not require a spatial filter. A multi-lobe far-field profile generated by a low filling-factor phase-locked(More)
We have coherently combined a high-power broad-area laser diode array by using a feedback loop closed off-axis external Talbot cavity. The off-axis feedback from two gratings provides transverse-mode control of broad-area lasers. The Talbot configuration of the external cavity implements diffractive coupling among laser diodes. Feedback from two gratings(More)
A compound external cavity is designed and implemented to achieve a homogeneous spectrum distribution of broad area laser diodes in an array and to narrow the spectral linewidth of the entire array. The compound external cavity is composed of an optical coupler and a Littrow external cavity with a telescope along the fast axis. The inhomogeneous(More)
— We consider synchronization of coupled semiconductor lasers modeled by coupled Lang and Kobayashi equations. We first analyze decoupled laser stability, and then characterize synchronization conditions of coupled laser dynamics. We rigorously prove that the coupled system locally synchronizes to a limit cycle under the coupling topology of an undirected(More)
We experimentally demonstrate the simultaneous injection locking of pairs of high-power broad-area laser diodes in a 19-laser array driven by a common current source. Each pair is injection locked by use of a single-mode low-power semiconductor laser. The frequency and phase locking are verified bythe optical spectrum and the interference pattern between(More)

We explored a path of achieving high quality phase-locking of broad-area laser diode (BALD) array that operates at high electrical to optical power conversion efficiency (PCE). We found that (a) improving single transverse mode control for each individual BALD, (b) employing global Talbot optical coupling among diodes, and (c) enhancing strength of optical(More)
We propose and implement a common external cavity to narrow spectral linewidth of two broad-area laser diode arrays (LDAs) and align their center wavelengths. The locked center wavelength of two LDAs can be tuned in the range of ~10 nm by tuning the tilted angle of the diffraction grating. The output beams of two LDAs are spatially overlapped through the(More)
We report preliminary results on the feasibility of a compact source of high power and high intensity coherent radiation emitted from an array of semiconductor diode lasers via the injection of a controlled electromagnetic field into the cavity of each laser. The new source is expected to generate coherent radiation of the order of magnitude of 10 Watts and(More)
