A laser is a device that produces monochromatic, coherent light through stimulated emission of photons from the atoms or molecules of a lasing medium, which have been excited from the ground state to a higher energy level. A diode laser is very small compared with a gas laser, but it emits high optical power. The beam is divergent. The divergence is different in two directions. When it is collimated, the beam is oval shape and the spot focused is elongated. Diode-lasers provide a most efficient and compact means of light generation and are attractive as light-sources in many applications, particularly those in which light is required only in a limited range of wavelengths. Diode-lasers are commonly used as sources of illumination in various graphics applications such as display systems, optical printing systems and optical recording systems. Diode laser light sources are frequently in the form of a bar which includes a plurality of individual lasers on a single semiconductor substrate. The lasers emit from the edge of the bar in a direction perpendicular to the length of the bar. These edge-emitting diode lasers have a horizontal cavity and emit light beams in a direction parallel to the wafer's plane or an active region of the wafer.
