Near - eld Analysis of Beam Properties of


We report mode structure and beam propagation analysis of high power strained (In,Ga)As quantum well lasers using the super-resolution capabilities of near-eld scanning optical microscopy (NSOM). We are able to directly measure the optical beam waist and astigmatism by imaging the output of the laser diode at various heights above the device facet. In the… (More)
