High Power Ingaasp-Based Laser Diodes
A growth technique adopted from the semiconductor industry combined with a new mixture of materials has made lifetimes in excess of 100 years possible for high-power near-infrared semiconductor lasers. This remarkable reliability and other attractive features may not only bring down the cost but also open up new dimensions in the laser markets and applications in human life, industry, and science.
