Abstract t within the active layer [1, 2, 3]. Fortunately, these characteristics can be improved with the technique of injection locking to a single mode master laser, for example a low-power diode laser. The high-power laser thus serves as an amplifier for the master laser. Details about this technique can be found in [4]. In this work we only discuss double-pass experiments. Single-pass BAL amplifiers are also in use (see the survey given in [5]), but they do not have the advantage of being cheaper than arrays. The injection-locked light can be single spatial- and spectral mode [12] and can be as high in power as 400 mW cw [6]. This result was obtained with a 1 W cw broad-area laser. Nowadays, BALs are available up to 4 W cw. The amplification of the master light can range from 10 to 25 dB, the highest values being reached when the amplifier is not saturated [7]. Also a low front facet reflectivity of the amplifier laser improves the performance [8]. There is no indication that BALs are inf
