Paper Abstract

An overview of the idiosyncratic emission characteristics of pulsed broad-area VCSELs is presented, together with a statistical model which describes these devices as quasi-homogeneous sources. The predicted properties of such sources, which include two reciprocity relations between near and far field aspects of the cross-spectral density as well as its propagation, are verified experimentally. We finish by showing how and which thermal effects are at the origin of this nonmodal emission.
