High-power diode lasers consisting of a a tapered region have waveguide section coupled to fabricated in 1.5-μm InGaAsP-InP multiple-quantum-well material. Self-focusing at high current densities and high intensity input into the taper section has been identified as a fundamental problem in these devices that has to be dealt with. To date, continuous-wave output powers of >1 W with /spl ap/80% of the power in the near-diffraction-limited central lobe of the far field have been obtained through a judicious choice of device parameters.
