Paper Abstract

Multiple-wavelength vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser arrays are fabricated by using a patterned-substrate growth technique and a location-resolvable in situ optical calibration method in a molecular beam epitaxy system. We achieved a record wavelength span of 62.7 nm, highly uniform threshold currents with an average of 2.16 +/- 0.81 mA, and high repeatability of wavelength spacing between 15 arrays with sharp wavelength shift rate of 117.14 nm/mm. Accuracy of 0.28% of high and low wavelength limits and a 2.66 angstroms wavelength standard deviation from 4 X 35 arrays are also obtained.
