We have investigated an edge-emitting tilted wave laser (TWL) with the active region based on GaInAs/GaAs quantum wells. In the TWL the wavelength stabilization is based on the coupling of the laser active waveguide cavity to a specially introduced thick epitaxial layer and the emission wavelength is defined by the combined cavity mode preferably by a single dominating mode.
