Abstract : The primary objective of this program is to develop a low cost, high yielding methodology for processing, packaging and characterization of MBE grown two dimensional high power laser diode arrays. Projected increases in overall yield of AlGaAs diode lasers would reduce manufacturing cost from the current $10 to $20 per peak watt to below $3 per peak watt. Emphasis will be placed on innovative packaging techniques that will utilize recent advances in diamond heat sinking technology.
