We present high-power ridge waveguide (RW) distributed feedback (DFB) lasers and DFB master optical power amplifiers (DFB-MOPAs) with high-quality beams optimized for pulsed operation and current modulation. A Bragg grating ensures stable longitudinal single-mode emission around 1064 nm. Furthermore, vertical and lateral structures of the devices were optimized for stable fundamental-mode operation. The slope efficiency of 1 mm DFB lasers slightly above threshold is as high as 0.95 W/A and the continuous wave (cw) optical output power is almost 400 mW at a current of 500 mA. For the DFB-MOPAs a cw output power of 1 W has been obtained. Due to low ellipticity, low divergence and low beam steering of the output beams the devices are well suited for efficient coupling to single mode waveguides.
