Research Institution
nLight proposes to suppress the key remaining output power extraction limiter COMD failure mechanism by passivating the cleaved facet of laser diodes with high bandgap semiconductor layers that is epitaxially grown in an atomically conformal manner at low temperature and in ultra-high vacuum.
