Superluminescent diodes with high output power (10 mW at 175 mA), wide spectral width (28 nm), low spectral modulation depth (<15%), wide frequency modulation bandwidth (570 MHz), and high single-mode fiber coupling efficiency (40%) are reported. The structure is based on a buried crescent laser structure with an antireflection coating and a "short-circuit" absorber to suppress lasing.
