Abstract

A laser with an unstable cavity comprising a broad area twin-contact semiconductor laser chip operating as a phase-conjugation (PC) mirror, lens, and external reflector is presented. A feature of the cavity is that the reflector is tilted at an angle from the optical axis of the cavity. The lasing occurred when the semiconductor laser produced a PC signal in a direction opposite to the incident beam. The observed lasing in the broad area twin-contact diode laser operating as an effective self-pumped, self-aligned PC mirror allows one to attain robust external cavity operation.
