1180nm DBR-ridge waveguide lasers with strain compensation layers in the active region for lifetime improvement


DBR ridge waveguide lasers at 1180nm were developed based on strained InGaAs quantum wells. The lasers feature a lifetime of more than 1000h at 100mW and are believed to be a key component for miniaturized SHG laser modules emitting in the yellow spectral range.
