We report the use of GaInNAs/GaAs material system for a range of 1.3 mm vertical-cavity devices namely VCSELs,VCSOAs, VECSELs and SESAMs. Using optical pumping, we demonstrate that up to 4mW of 1290nm output power can be fibre-coupled from a VCSEL. We also show that tayloring the VCSEL structure allows to produce a monolithic long-wavelength VCSOA with up to 16 dB of gain. We also report the first demonstration of a 1.3 mm VECSEL withmore than 0.5W of CW ouptut power. Finally, annealing effects on the properties of a GaInNAs SBR and modelocking of two Nd:doped solid state lasers using this element are described.
