Paper Abstract

We present a technique for monolithic integration of vertical cavity lasers and detectors with refractive microlenses etched on the back side of the semiconductor substrate in a wafer-scale process. This integration provides collimated or focused laser beam sources for applications in free-space interconnections or for coupling to optical fibers, and it improves the collection efficiency of detectors.
