We report on broad-area distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) lasers with a stripe width of 90 ??m providing up to 14-W optical power and 50% maximum conversion efficiency. Ninety-five percent of the power is included within a wavelength range of less than 1 nm. The wavelength shift between threshold and the maximum output power is less than 3.5 nm. The wavelength stabilization is achieved with a 500-??m -long DBR containing a sixth-order Bragg grating defined by i-line wafer stepper lithography and fabricated by reactive ion etching.
