Abstract
Mid-infrared laser have been demonstrated to provide unique capabilities in infrared countermeasures systems. It is desired to increase the power output from optically pumped semiconductor lasers to address future system requirements. The proposed work will investigate beam combining technologies and novel semiconductor device mounting that improves the thermal management of the lasers, potentially increasing laser efficiency and power output.
