Efficient amplification of a single-mode laser diode via photorefractive beam combination using an injection locked laser diode array pump

Record type: Article

Powers in excess of 100mW have been obtained in a near-diffraction-limited, single-mode laser-diode output by photorefractive two-beam coupling in BaTiO3, using an injection-locked 1W diode-laser array as the pump source. Signal gains of as much as 8.1 are obtained, corresponding to pump transfer efficiencies of 49%. Calculations suggest that powers as high as 225mW should be obtainable, given suitable antireflection-coated optics.
