This chapter considers the quantum dot active region as a possible candidate for high-power laser applications. Thermal rollover, catastrophic optical mirror damage, and other mechanisms of power limitation in diode lasers are discussed, taking into account specific aspects of quantum dot lasers. Power conversion efficiency in a QD laser is analytically treated, and influence of laser structure and QD parameters is also discussed. Internal loss and other parameters affecting slope efficiency of a QD laser are considered in connection with inherent properties of self-organized quantum dots. The chapter also addresses issues associated with the realization of a continuous-wave lasing regime in QD lasers. Device characteristics are summarized for state-of-the-art high-power quantum dot lasers operating in the 0.9-1.1 and 1.2-1.3 spectral ranges.

Keywords:   high-power lasers, continuous-wave operation, catastrophic optical damage, thermal rollover
