Optically-pumped vertical-external-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VECSELs) have recently received much attention due to their potential for application in scientific and industrial fields. Particularly, they are promising for continuous-wave (cw) high power operation. However, only a considerable improvement of the thermal management allows us to obtain cw VECSEL output-powers in excess of 100 W. Besides heating losses, non-heating power losses need to be analyzed for a deeper understanding of power-limiting factors in a VECSEL and for the improvement of its performance. In our present work, a standard V-cavity VECSEL configuration is employed. Input-output characteristics are recorded for different plane out-coupling mirrors and for varying heat sink temperatures. Here, we take into account optical-scattering losses to improve a theoretical model from which we extract the VECSEL-chips thermal resistance as well as its scattering coefficient from experimental input-output characteristics.
