We study the influence of a patterned contact design on the beam properties of high-brightness tapered lasers. A simple approach to simulate patterned injection has been developed and introduced into a quasi-three-dimensional tapered laser model. The method is applied to tapered lasers, whose performance is limited by two different mechanisms: self-focusing and poor modal filtering. The results show an improvement in beam quality in comparison to standard devices.
