Access from EThOS:
The Vertical External Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VECSEL) is now firmly established as an important category of semiconductor laser with many advantageous properties including high output power, excellent beam quality and wavelength flexibility. Thermal management of the optical pumped arrangement is of critical importance to ensure optimum operation, and crystalline heatspreader platelets have been successfully used in this role.
