We report theoretical and experimental assessments of prototype broad-area curved-groove distributed Bragg reflector laser diodes (c-DBR) and demonstrate their single-mode and self-focusing operation. These laser sources will be suitable for applications requiring both spectrally and spatially enhanced optical beam quality.
