Paper Abstract

This paper reviews the recent advances made in monolithic GaAs based, directly modulated, 1.3micrometers VCSEL array technology. Such VCSEL arrays are poised to begin occupying a large telecommunications application space. We present data demonstrating 1.3 micrometers VCSELs having ~ 1mW optical power across a wide temperature range of 10 to 90 degree(s)C while operating with low voltages of less than 2.5V. The data includes performance on typical 8 and 12 element arrays at the die level as well in the module. We also present very encouraging preliminary reliability results.
