This work reports single-frequency laser oscillation at 1003.4 nm of an optically pumped external cavity semiconductor laser. By using a gain structure bonded onto a high conductivity substrate, we demonstrate both theoretically and experimentally the strong reduction of the thermal resistance of the active semiconductor medium, resulting in a high power laser emission. The spectro-temporal dynamics of the laser is also explained. Furthermore, an intracavity frequency-doubling crystal was used
