Paper Abstract

In this paper, we evaluate the transmission throughput/range limits for multi mode and single mode 850 nm vertical cavity surface emitting lasers. Transmission experiments in the various configurations like fibre length are performed. We utilize the most basic modulation format as amplitude shift keying without any form of digital signal pre and post processing. Operation up to 50 Gbit/s below 7% FEC limit was achieved for both multi and single mode VCSEL. Experiments showed that SM VCSEL outperforms MM VCSEL in both fields: transmission distances and high speed performance operating error free at 25 Gbit/s up to 200 meters and achieving two orders of magnitude lower BER at 50 Gbit/s (3.7*10-5 for SM comparing to 3.1*10 -3 for MM).
