Room-temperature lasing at the wavelength of 1.31 μm is achieved from the ground state of an InGaAs/GaAs quantum-dot ensemble. At 79 K, a very low threshold current density of 11.5 A/cm2 is obtained at a wavelength of 1.23 μm. The room-temperature lasing at 1.31 μm is obtained with a threshold current density of 270 A/cm2 using high-reflectivity facet coatings. The temperature-dependent threshold with and without high-reflectivity end mirrors is studied, and ground-state lasing is obtained up to the highest temperature investigated of 324 K. © 1998 American Institute of Physics.
