Electrically pumped, C-band vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs) grown on GaAs are reported for the first time. The VCSELs employed three GaInNAsSb quantum wells separated by GaNAs barriers. Pulsed lasing was observed at 1534 nm, in the ITU C-band, when cooled. These lasers exhibit the longest wavelength reported to date for electrically pumped VCSELs grown on GaAs substrates.
