Abstract

A method is described for selectively plating one of the faces normal to the direction of propagation of the principal monochromatic component of the light generated by an injection laser diode. Plating one of these faces, which hereafter will be referred to as the back face, will selectively enhance the principal monochromatic component of the output from the injection laser.
