In this letter, we report on monolithic distributed Bragg reflector ridge waveguide diode lasers. The lasers feature highly strained InGaAs quantum wells and fifth order surface gratings for a stabilized emission wavelength ~1120 nm. Output powers up to 1 W and a maximum conversion efficiency of ~34% were achieved in a spatial and spectral single-mode. In a preliminary reliability test, at 0.4 W a lifetime of could be demonstrated. Therefore, the laser sources should allow for an efficient non-linear frequency doubling to 560 nm.
