The emission dynamics of an optically pumped 1.3 +m (GaIn)(NAs)/GaAs vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser is investigated. We achieve room-temperature operation at 1285 nm with a low optical pumping threshold and fast emission dynamics: A minimum peak delay of 15.5 ps and a minimum pulse width of 10.5 ps are observed after excitation with 100 fs pulses. Laser operation with picosecond emission dynamics is demonstrated over a wide temperature range from 30 K to 388 K. We explain this extraordinarily large temperature operation range on the basis of measurements of the optical gain in (GaIn)(NAs)/GaAs. We find a gain broadening at elevated carrier densities due to contributions of higher subband transitions.
