Abstract

Reliable, single‐mode, 100 mW operation of strained‐layer InGaAs single quantum well ridge waveguide lasers is demonstrated. The mean time to failure of coated, 5 μm wide lasers aged at constant current is over 100 000 h at 25 °C. Peak output power is 300 mW per facet, limited by thermal effects. The lasing wavelength is 980 nm. Preliminary results of pumping an erbium‐doped fiber laser are reported.
