Modal conversion of a phase-locked extended-cavity diode laser array into a single lobe

Abstract : Phase-locked operation of an array of ten diode lasers is demonstrated in an extended-cavity using the Talbot self-imaging effect. An output power up to 1.7 W has been obtained. The extracavity coherent conversion of the multilobed array supermode into a Gaussian mode is investigated theoretically based on a binary phase grating. The best configuration results in a conversion efficiency of 83%. Experimentally, the conversion efficiency reaches 50% and is limited by the imperfect coherence of the laser array. We conclude that the conversion setup provides an actual measurement of the power in the selected array supermode.
