In this letter, we demonstrate the importance of the fabricated device structure for the external differential efficiency, threshold current density, and maximum operating temperature for ground state operation of a 1.31-mu/m quantum dot laser. The introduction of a shallow ridge etch design and selective electroplating of the gold bondpads is demonstrated to offer improved performance in comparison to a deep ridge etch design with thinner evaporated gold bondpads
