Paper Abstract

High performance vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs) emitting in the 1310 nm waveband are fabricated by bonding AlGaAs/GaAs distributed Bragg reflectors (DBRs) on both sides of a InP-based cavity containing 5 InAlGaAs quantum wells using the localized wafer fusion technique. A tunnel junction structure is used to inject carriers into the active region. Devices with 7 μm aperture produce single mode emission with 40 dB side-mode suppression ratio. Maximum single mode output power of 1.7 mW is obtained in the temperature range of 20-70°C. Modulation capability at 3.2 Gb/s is demonstrated both at room temperature and 70°C with rise time and fall time values of eye diagrams bellow 120 ps. Overall device performance complies with the requirements of 10 GBASE-LX4 IEEE.802.3ae standard.
