We report the demonstration of an InGaAlAs/InP quantum-well, high-power, low-noise packaged semiconductor external cavity laser (ECL) operating at 1550 nm. The laser comprises a double-pass, curved-channel slab-coupled optical waveguide amplifier (SCOWA) coupled to a narrow-bandwidth (2.5 GHz) fiber Bragg grating passive cavity using a lensed-fiber. At a bias current of 4 A, the ECL produces 370 mW of fiber-coupled output power with a Voigt lineshape having Gaussian and Lorentzian linewidths of 35 and 1 kHz, respectively, and relative intensity noise <; -160 dB/Hz from 200 kHz to 10 GHz.
