Metal-clad ridge waveguide (MCRW), double quantum well, separately confined heterostrucuture (DQW-SCH) lasers have been fabricated having continuous-wave (CW) threshold currents of 10–12 mA and external differential quantum efficiencies of 41–46% per uncoated facet. Light/current characteristics are linear to >70 mW, and zero-order lateral mode operation was measured at 56 mW. The CW burn-off power density is nearly double the best previously reported value.
