Distributed Bragg reflector tapered lasers emitting at a wavelength of about 1060 nm were realized. The expitaxial layer structure leads to a vertical far-field angle of 15deg (full-width at half-maximum). The devices with a total length of 4 mm consist of 2-mm-long ridge waveguide and tapered sections. The input currents to both sections can be independently controlled. The laser reached 5-W output power with a narrow spectral linewidth below 40 pm (95% power) and a nearly diffraction-limited beam quality.
