Abstract:

Progress in the development of Semiconductor Laser Diode Arrays SLDAs has resulted in high efficiency, compact devices suitable for use in a variety of applications. As these devices are driven to operation at increasing power levels, heat dissipation problems can limit the peak power, lasing line stability, andor the lifetime of the array. Already, SLDAs currently being fabricated have heat dissipation requirements that cannot be met by conventional heat sink or cold plate technology. New, more effective heat dissipation technologies are required. AN
