1 June 1990 High-modulation-rate potential for surface emitter laser diode arrays
Author Affiliations +
A vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser diode capable of narrow-line emission at injection currents below 1 mA during room temperature dc operation is described. It is estimated that surface-emitting laser diodes can potentially be modulated to speeds as high as 30 GHz. It is argued that phased array operation at high output powers should be possible, but that problems with thermal performance, wafer uniformity, and circuit layout need to be resolved.
