Paper Abstract

With the growing maturation of vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) technology as a source of commercial off-the-shelf components, the question of VCSEL suitability for use in avionics-qualifiable fiber-optic systems naturally follows. This paper addresses avionics suitability from two perspectives. First, measured performance and burn-in reliability results, determined from characterization of Honeywell VCSELs, are compared with application-based military and commercial avionics environmental requirements. Second, design guidelines for developing a cost-effective VCSEL optical subassembly (VCSEL/OSA) are outlined.
