New AlOx VCSELs are very interesting for dual-purpose applications, since the emitting aperture, which guide the current lines, may be reduced to a few microns; in parallel, the ALOx diaphragm is transparent to near IR radiations. Thus, with such devices, we can get a detective area greater than the emissive one. We present in this paper our first results for an experimental numerical optical link between two linear AlOx VCSEL arrays. We first give the characteristics of the VCSEL arrays used in our experiment and describe the associated electronics. Then we present the results obtained on our test link and the problem encountered in transmission at a data rate greater than 50 Mbits/s. Finally, we tried to explain this limitation by characterizing the bandwidths of the electronics and testing all the elements on a network analyzer.
