Paper Abstract

Vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs) have the potential to provide massively parallel 2D free space chip-to- chip and fiber guided board to board optical interconnections. We describe the construction and performance of two prototype optical data links (2D-ODL). One prototype used direct modulation of a 2 X 18 array of fiber pigtailed VCSELs. The other 2D-ODL attempted to use an 8 X 18 VCSEL array as an optical power source for a symmetric self-electooptic effect device reflection modulator array.
