A novel development of the proton isolated narrow stripe GaAs/GaAlAs DH-structure laser is presented. These lasers show excellent linearity, high power output and good coupling possibilities for optical fibers. They have a predicted lifetime above 106 hours at room temperature. The fabrication and characteristics of these lasers are presented.
