We summarize a novel integrated wavelength-stabilization scheme for broad stripe surface-emitting lasers. The method is based on two gratings fabricated on opposite sides of a device in which the first grating disperses light through the substrate to the opposite side, where the second surface has a feedback grating that operates under total internal reflection and in the Littrow condition to provide feedback into the gain medium. Experimental results have been obtained for both high power and a narrow linewidth, showing a CW slope of 0.85 W A .
