Optical Coatings for Disk Lasers

Abstract

The performances of disk lasers can be improved with optical coatings which is shown for two different applications. For an AlGaAs disk laser, the efficiency was increased from 34% to 50% using an antireflective coating. Additionally, such a coating passivates the surface resulting in an higher lifetime. For an AlGaN disk laser, the Bragg mirror was… (More)
