Abstract

In many diode laser applications such as optical fiber communications, raster input and output scanners and optical memories, it is important that the light output from the laser is not interrupted due to failure of the laser; otherwise, the functional capabilities of the particular application are interrupted for a period of time until repair can be procured, for example, by a technical representative.
