The potential for power scaling and wavelength scalability of semiconductor disk lasers (SDLs) makes them attractive for high-power single-frequency operation with numerous applications. In particular, single-frequency operation at 1.55 μm has been demonstrated with a monolithically grown InP-based SDL with 170 mW of output power at room temperature [1].
