We compare ridge-waveguide lasers with trench widths of 5 and 20 mum. The emission wavelength is around 1064 nm and the ridge width is 5 m. The maximum output power exceeds 2 W. The 5-mum trench-width device exhibits a much more stable lateral far-field. The full-width at half-maximum of the vertical far-field profile is only 15deg due to a super-large optical cavity.
