A phase-locked quantum cascade laser(QCL) array consisting of one hundred elements that were integrated in parallel was achieved at λ ∼ 4.6 μm. The proposed Fraunhofer’s multiple slits diffraction model predicted and explained the far-field pattern of the phase-locked laser array. A single-lobed far-field pattern, attributed to the emission of an in-phase-like supermode, is obtained near the threshold (I). Even at 1.5 I, greater than 73.3% of the laser output power is concentrated in a low-divergence beam with an optical power of up to 40 W.
