We have studied the effect of channel and/or spacing chirpings on the near field and near field intensity patterns, modal gains and radiation angles of 6 supermodes in the index-guided laser arrays with 6 channels, on the basis of the coupled mode theory. The spacings between channels can be indenpendent parameters for control of the radiation angle. It is found that an asymmetrically v channel-chirped array has both a smaller radiation angle and better supermode discrimination characteristics than a uniform array. Comparing two approaches for enhancing modal stability in point of supermode discrimination characteristics, approach I which increases the coupling cofficient between the outer-most waveguides at each end of an otherwise uniform array, has superior discrimination characteristics to the approach II which increases the propagation constant for the end elements with the same coupling between neighbor elements. Approach III which has a narrower spacing between the outer-most waveguides at one end and a wider channel width of the outer-most waveguide at another end, gets a narrower radiation angle than the approach I and good supermode discrimination characteristics by applying optimized gain profiles.
