The modal properties of unstable resonator lasers with a lateral waveguide have been analyzed, and an unstable resonator semiconductor laser with a real index lateral waveguide has been demonstrated. Output powers in excess of 400 mW were observed with a stable, highly coherent lateral field distribution. The incorporation of a lateral real index waveguide with the unstable resonator configuration results in an increase in the external quantum efficiency and the appearance of ripples in the lateral field distribution.
