In this paper, electrically pumped GaSb-based vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers operating continuous wave at a record long emission wavelength of ∼2.6 μm are presented. Owing to the excellent thermal heat management, the devices exhibit single-mode operation up to a heat-sink temperature of 55 °C. Lateral current confinement and index guiding in the device are accomplished by utilizing the buried tunnel junction concept. Devices with aperture diameters of 6 μm show maximum output powers of 0.3 mW at room temperature with quantum efficiencies around 10%.
