We demonstrate novel electrically driven 1330 and 1550 nm VCSELs using conventional InGaAsP active regions. The VCSELs employ two TiO2/SiO2 DBR mirrors and an InAlAs tunnel junction that converts electrons to holes, minimizing free carrier losses in the p-type material. The active layers are transferred onto Si wafers using wafer-scale Pd silicide bonding. We have obtained single-mode room-temperature output powers as high as 2.4mW at 1330nm and 2.7mW at 1550nm. At 80C we have obtained 0.6mW of single-mode power at 1330nm and over 1 mW at 1550nm. These are the highest power single-mode InP-based VCSELs reported in these wavelength ranges.
