Laser diodes with a strongly asymmetric shape of the emitting region.

Broad area Laser diodes (also called broad stripe or broad Emitter laser diodes, single-emitter laser diodes, and high Brightness Diode lasers) are edge-emitting laser diodes where the emitting region at the front Facet has the shape of a broad stripe, with dimensions of 1 μm × 100 μm.
