Abstract

We have fabricated a monolithically integrated master oscillator power amplifier, M-MOPA, with a flared power amplifier region which radiates in a single diffraction limited lobe to an output power in excess of 2 W CW. The radiation pattern is stable with increasing drive current. The spectral output of the M-MOPA is a single longitudinal mode with high side-mode suppression ratio greater than 25 dB.
