Lasers With Distributed Loss Have Sublinear Power Output

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We provide a simple explanation for why laser media with distributed loss should have a sublinear output power characteristic. This understanding clarifies the role of long-range spatial hole burning in reducing the efficiency of semiconductor lasers, and is essential for optimizing power output.
