In this work, the optical modulation spectroscopy technique - thermoreflectance has been employed to study temperature distributions on the surface of optically pumped VECSELs. The thermoreflectance is based on the relative change of reflectivity of the sample induced by the change of its temperature. In this case the temperature change of the sample is induced by operating the pump in pulse mode. We have investigated samples with and without intracavity heatspreader. The resulting temperatures and temperature distributions on the sample surface have been measured and compared with theoretical calculations. The results confirm the effectiveness of SiC heatspreader approach. This is also a first report on the direct temperature mapping on VECSEL, with micron spatial resolution.
