High power multi-mode interferometer (MMI) laser diode (LD) for fiber-amplifiers was investigated. LD achieved a significant reduction of 40% in electric power consumption compared to regular single lobe LDs. The implemented MMI-LDs also achieved a high output power of 0.7 W, which was than a 70% increase compared to regular LDs.
