Title: Mode selection and tuning of single-frequency short-cavity VECSELs

Here, we report on mode selection and tuning properties of vertical-external-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VECSELs) containing coupled semiconductor and external cavities of total length less than 1 mm. Our goal is to create narrowlinewidth (<1MHz) single-frequency VECSELs that operate near 850 nm on a single longitudinal cavity resonance and tune versus temperature without mode hops. We have designed, fabricated, and measured VECSELs with external-cavity lengths ranging from 25 to 800 μm. Lastly, we compare simulated and measured coupled-cavity mode frequencies and discuss criteria for single mode selection.
