We report on an optically pumped single-mode GaSb-based semiconductor disk laser (SDL) emitting at 2.05 lm at an output power of 960 mW (1100 mW) with a side-mode suppression of better than 30 dB (20 dB). A linewidth of 60 kHz (sampling time: 100 ls) was measured at an output power of 960 mW. This improvement in output power over previous reports, which was achieved via a careful design of the SDL cavity paying close attention to the spatial overlap between cavity mode and pump spot, makes this class of SDL particularly attractive for remote sensing and optical free-space communication.
