We demonstrate a single-frequency, continuous-wave, optically pumped semiconductor laser (OPSL) using an injection-locking technique. Parameters such as output coupling, injection power, and injection wavelength are investigated. With the proper parameters, the output power of the injection-locked laser exceeds the output power of its free-running condition. With 1.5 W of injection power from the master laser, over 9 W of output power is achieved at 1015 nm.
