Abstract
We report on recent progress in the design of short-wavelength vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) for 10 Gbit/s datacom applications. Topics of interest include differential mode delay characterizations of high-performance multimode fibers and their interplay with transverse single- and multimode VCSELs, flip-chip integrated two-dimensional arrays at 850 nm wavelength, as well as experiments toward the realization of optical backplanes. In the latter case, reliable 10 Gbit/s data transmission has been achieved over low-loss integrated polymer waveguides with up to 1 meter length. Moreover we present VCSELs with output powers in the 10 mW range that are employed in multi-beam transmitters for free-space optical data transmission with Gbit/s speed over distances of up to about 2 km.
