The temperature dependence and power output of vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) are addressed. The peak wavelength of the quantum well has been offset from the wavelength of the device cavity mode so that they are aligned at elevated temperatures. The result of this design change is to produce an 8-μm-diameter VCSEL capable of operation to 145°C, as well as CW operation of broad-area (70-μm diameter) heat-sunk devices to record power levels. Fiber coupling experiments were also carried out, and a record 33-mW CW power was coupled to a multimode fiber
