Light-current, spectral, and temperature characteristics of long-wavelength (1.46–1.5 µm) lasers grown on GaAs substrates, with an active area based on InAs-InGaAs quantum dots, are studied. To reach the required lasing wavelength, quantum dots were grown on top of a metamorphic InGaAs buffer layer with an In content of about 20%. The maximum output power in pulsed mode was 7 W at room temperature. The differential efficiency of the laser, which had a 1.5-mm-long cavity, was 50%. The temperature dependence of the threshold current is described by a characteristic temperature of 61 K in the temperature range 10–73°C.
