We report on reliable single-mode laser modules at 1060 nm used in pulsed operation for efficient seeding of fiber amplifiers. The modules incorporate InGaAlAs single quantum well diodes with a design inherited from telecom qualified devices. Pulse parameters can be widely varied with laser intrinsic modulation capability in GHz range. 2.5 W peak power is exhibited in a single-mode fiber at a current of 5 A with 200 ns pulses. Reliability is proven by lifetest in pulsed operation up to 3.5 A. Wavelength stabilization with fiber Bragg gratings is obtained over a wide range of operating conditions.
