Paper Abstract

The intriguing polarization properties of Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) are discussed and different physical mechanisms to explain this behavior are proposed. Experimental results obtained on different types of VCSELs will be confronted with the predictions from different theoretical models.
