Abstract : This report is on the Semiconductor Laser Array Technique (SEMLAT). The report briefly outlines the initial approach to the cascaded array amplification scheme and describes the preliminary materials investigation and antireflective SiO deposition studies. Effective antireflective coatings have been deposited consistently on single diodes as well as array diodes. A value of the expected gain of these diodes, based on measurement of the threshold current before and after coating, is estimated to be more than 20 times. (Author)
