We demonstrate that a synchronously pumped In0.53Ga0.47As/InP multiple-quantum-well surface-emitting laser in an external cavity can produce 36-ps pulses with a high average power of 260 mW and a broad spectral width of 18 nm. The output pulses are strongly upchirped and could be shortened to 153 fs with peak powers exceeding 1 kW by chirp compensation with a diffraction grating pair.
