A ridge waveguide quantum dot (QD) laser with a stripe width of 15 μm was fabricated by using the seven-stacked InAs QD layers based on the InAlGaAs-InAlAs material system on InP  substrate. Room-temperature lasing operation was observed at 1.501 μm, which is the first observation from the InAs QDs with the InAlGaAs-InAlAs structure. The characteristic temperature of the InAs QD laser calculated from the temperature dependence of threshold current density was 135 K in the temperature range from 200 K to room temperature.
