Paper Abstract

Vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (SELs) offer many desirable features that are suitable for applications in optical interconnect, optical signal processing and optical computing. We describe a GaAs vertical cavity SEL with a novel structure, and discuss those key laser performance characteristics such as threshold current, power output, efficiency, far field divergence, and modulation response that are important to these potential applications.
