A record output power of 16.1 W with a direct-bonded dual-SiC-heatspreader distributed Bragg reflector (DBR)-free active region at 10.5°C coolant temperature is reported. A comparison in laser performance confirms the dual-heatspreader DBR-free configuration dissipates heat more effectively than the single-heatspreader geometry.
