We report the performance and characteristics of a GaInNAs-based tunable fibre vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser emitting at a wavelength of ~1200nm which may find application as a source in gasoline octane detection. The device, which is pumped through the fibre by 810nm diodes, can emit more than 0.3mW of output power and is tunable over 17nm around 1197nm.
