A record high fundamental-mode power of 5.1 mW was achieved from coupled-resonator vertical-cavity lasers (CRVCLs). In conventional VCSELs, the extent to which the gain volume may be increased is limited by the onset of multi-mode operation. Results indicate that this limitation is circumvented in a coupled-resonator device allowing high power fundamental-mode operation.
