Abstract

We propose a novel method for extracting light beams from diamond-shaped total-internal reflection modes in two-dimensional microcavity laser diodes by the use of intracavity air gaps. By fabricating such a laser diode, we experimentally demonstrate that the direction and longitudinal mode spacing of the output beams are in good accordance with theoretical calculations.
